The Lionheart of Dan Wheldon is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Checkered Flag with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and daily referendums. The compassionate population of 20.968 billion Dan Wheldonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Emberton UK. The average income tax rate is 75.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dan Wheldonian economy, worth a remarkable 4,859 trillion Checkered Flags a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 231,761 Checkered Flags, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, the Coast Guard is pioneering a quixotic program to train fish, people typically base their votes on which party has the cutest logo, and politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dan Wheldon's national animal is the Open Wheeled Race Car, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnostic Pantheism.

Dan Wheldon is ranked 1,356th in the world and 21st in NationStates for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 10,090.4 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
