The Republic of Wacman is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Ronald Reagan with an even hand, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, daily referendums, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 11.766 billion Wacmanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of virginville. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Wacmanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,388 trillion wac coins a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 117,991 wac coins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 350,827 per year while the poor average 31,112, a ratio of 11.3 to 1.

The nation is reliant on the principle of mutually assured destruction to maintain its security, wealthy students ride to school past mendicant dropouts, an IT mega-corporation has a patent pending on the rectangle, and businesses often fire workers in favour of cheaper automatic systems. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wacman's national animal is the Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnostic.

Wacman is ranked 3,249th in Balder and 108,437th in the world for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -5 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
