The People's Republic of Wheres Waldo is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 619 million, 615 million of whom are zombies, 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 99%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Book Publishing and Automobile Manufacturing.

The government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Wheres Waldo City, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, and new urban roads are threatening city parks. 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 326th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 36 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Wheres Waldo is currently considering its options.
