OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Wandering Souls of Waterana is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate, intelligent population of 20.452 billion Wateranans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent 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.

Foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, the mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, and Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity. 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 3,753rd in the Pacific and 106,659th in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring -3 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
