Then is the world one.

What is Rosencrantz’s logic here? That as Denmark goes, so goes the world? That’s a pretty Danish-centric point of view. Which makes me wonder if Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Danish. They don’t seem to have Danish names. Or is Rosencrantz attempting to flatter Hamlet’s home state? Like, this place is so fantastic that if it’s a prison, then everywhere else must be, too?
Or maybe Rosencrantz is somehow making a joke like the one about the monk at a baseball game who orders a hot dog saying, “Make me one with everything.”?
