When a Danish person uses a combination of patriotism and limited knowledge of the non-Danish world to explain Danish society to a foreigner. This foreigner may be a tourist or a resident immigrant.
"Here in Denmark, we eat Danish rye bread. All of the children eat it every day. I don't know why and we don't think about it. That's just the way it is."

"Here in Denmark, all women hold jobs and work as equals to the men" is a dansplanation because it assumes that someone from another country or culture has a different experience.
