OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The People's Republic of Wheres Waldo is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 6.186 billion Wheres Waldoans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Commerce, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wheres Waldo City. The average income tax rate is 98%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Book Publishing and Automobile Manufacturing.

Badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, online tourism reviews of Wheres Waldo are suspiciously positive and amazingly similar, women earn less than half the salary of men if they can even find a job, and airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted. Crime is totally unknown. Wheres Waldo's national animal is the Woof, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Scroll.

Wheres Waldo is ranked 1st in Wambo Confederation and 748th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 166 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
