The Kingdom of Danelag is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King with an even hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, unlimited-speed roads, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 37.516 billion Danelagians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of York. The average income tax rate is 13.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Danelagian economy, worth a remarkable 6,879 trillion kroner a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 183,363 kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

At customs baggage gets an x-ray and female travelers get an ultrasound, auditors are gutting every governmental department, internet ads promising "hot singles in your area" are even less accurate than they used to be, and protecting the land is holey work. Crime is totally unknown. Danelag's national animal is the albatross, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Danelag is ranked 15,804th in the world and 834th in Lazarus for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 9,134.36 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
