Regional Influence: Shoeshiner


The Republic of Dans Gres is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.077 billion Dans Gresians 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, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 83.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dans Gresian economy, worth 202 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Basket Weaving. Average income is 97,443 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Party-lovers often change religions just for the weekend, homophobia is off the menu, foreign policy is to avoid standing up to bullies, and anti-government web sites are springing up. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dans Gres's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Dans Gres is ranked 13,615th in the world and 244th in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 88.06 on the Human Development Index.
