OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Wandering Souls of Waterana is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The compassionate, intelligent population of 19.937 billion Wateranans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and Social Equality. The average income tax rate is 99%. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Book Publishing.

The nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, prices for nearly everything reach all time highs as business subsidies are discontinued, and recruitment posters proclaim the army to be both fabulous and fashionable. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Waterana's national animal is the moon dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its currency is the mana.

Waterana is ranked 19th in the Pacific and 1,063rd in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 52 on the Enoch Index.
