The Empire of Dhan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Daniel the First and the Last with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, pith helmet sales, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 20.835 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 prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lynaad. The average income tax rate is 97.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Dhanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,273 trillion danns a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 157,106 danns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend, to say that military robots are inclined towards violence is offensive, history textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students, and the freedom to be free is always just out of reach. 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 11,982nd in the world and 698th in Lazarus for Highest Average Incomes, with 157,106.45 Standard Monetary Units.
