The Perpetually Confused State of Whatia is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Dave with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, intelligent population of 16.509 billion, 15.916 billion of whom are zombies, Whatians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, Education, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Whatopolis. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

The WBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, and droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Whatia's national animal is the gerbil, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the taco.

Whatia is ranked 3,414th in Osiris and 115,090th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -38 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Whatia is currently considering its options.
