OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The People's Republic of Wheres Waldo is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.307 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.

Phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, shanty towns are forming in the suburbs of major cities, a large percentage of the poor live from cradle to grave in subterranean wage slavery, and elected officials often serve for decades in a single term. 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 4th in Wambo Confederation and 73,349th in the world for Most Extreme, scoring 14 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
