The Wandering Souls of Waterana is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The compassionate, intelligent population of 20.147 billion Wateranans 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 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 national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, criminals are thrown to the moon dolphins to repay their debt to society, anti-government web sites are springing up, and the moon dolphin is a protected species. 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 29th in the Pacific and 1,323rd in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring 66 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
