The United Kingdom of The Dakota Islands is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Elizabeth and King Ryan I with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.644 billion Islanders have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Hillsborough City. The average income tax rate is 49.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Dakotaian economy, worth 216 trillion Francs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 131,903 Francs, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious, the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy', and colonists who were promised new lands find only war-torn devastation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Dakota Islands's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Dakota Islands is ranked 16,933rd in the world and 2nd in The Swedish Kingdom for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 273.58 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
