The Empire of Dhan is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Daniel the First and the Last with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, sprawling nuclear power plants, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic population of 19.065 billion Dhanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lynaad. The average income tax rate is 97.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Dhanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,983 trillion danns a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 156,490 danns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Birth rates have hit an all-time low, space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, and doctors prescribe videos of political debates to patients with insomnia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dhan's national animal is the elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dhan is ranked 7,459th in the world and 128th in Lazarus for Most Stationary, with 1,617.707298 Days.
