The Perpetually Confused State of Whatia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Dave with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service. The compassionate, democratic population of 22.444 billion Whatians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Whatopolis. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Whatian economy, worth a remarkable 5,329 trillion tacoes a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 237,452 tacoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

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 a capable 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.

Whatia is ranked 6th in Osiris and 141st in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with 4,789.05 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
