Denmark is a country southwest of Sweden and south of Norway, bordered to the south by Germany. As the smallest host of Vikings, Denmark became filthy rich through charity donations by western Europeans in equalization payments commonly referred to as Daneguilt.

Denmark was not a founding member of the Eastern Union, although its prior relations with the Kingdom of Lym brought it under the Union's sphere of influence so much that it was accidentally acceded to them in the Treaty of Paris.
