OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The People's Republic of Wheres Waldo is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.965 billion Wheres Waldoans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt 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.

Environmental protestors are being rounded up and taken away in sinister black vans as a massive land development campaign gets underway, the government encourages conflict abroad to increase arms sales, mothers are routinely abandoning their children in the name of women's rights, and political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations. 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 5th in Wambo Confederation and 110,866th in the world for Best Weather, with -803 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
