The Republic of Wacman is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Ronald Reagan with an even hand, and notable for its hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 11.143 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defence. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of virginville. The average income tax rate is 55%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Gambling industry, followed by Tourism and Book Publishing.

Radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, the nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events, all tariffs have been abolished, and graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail. 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, its national religion is Agnostic, and its currency is the wac coin.

Wacman is ranked 383rd in Balder and 8,660th in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 58 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
