The Republic of Wacman is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Ronald Reagan with a fair hand, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 11.535 billion Wacmanians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt 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 Tourism industry, followed by Gambling and Book Publishing.

The Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy, people are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer, truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, and citizens may cast their vote over the internet or phone. 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 2,995th in Balder and 109,711th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -10 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
