OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The People's Republic of Wheres Waldo is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 6.725 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.

'Mountain Doobie' is widely regarded as the nation's favourite drink, rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million Scrolls of property damage, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', and wealthy parents-to-be can select their perfect baby. 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 273rd in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 25 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
