The Wandering Souls of Waterana is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its strong anti-business policies. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 19.37 billion are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whoever 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, 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 100%. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Book Publishing.
Roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government, and refugees from other nations are flocking to Waterana's border. 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 many lush forests, and its currency is the mana.
