OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Wandering Souls of Waterana is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its strong anti-business policies. The compassionate, democratic population of 21.041 billion Wateranans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Social Policy. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The enormous but inefficient Wateranan economy, worth a remarkable 1,917 trillion manas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is 91,127 manas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, citizens wishing to leave the country must surrender half their wealth to the government, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, and people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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.

Waterana is ranked 3,665th in the Pacific and 101,283rd in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.031 Stalins.
