The Parliamentary Republic of Dankstergrad is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Shay Castava with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and parental licensing program. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.143 billion Danksterians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Savannah. The average income tax rate is 76.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Danksterian economy, worth a remarkable 1,233 trillion Gradios a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 110,727 Gradios, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones, kindergarten teachers with ankle-bracelets are closely supervised by their parole officers, imitation is the sincerest form of felony, and the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dankstergrad's national animal is the Red Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of All Worlds.

Dankstergrad is ranked 141,768th in the world and 4,762nd in the South Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 461.63 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
