The Nuclear Fallout of A Post-Apocalyptic Wasteland is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Avatar of Anarchist Stan with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 5.722 billion Post-Apocalyptic Wastelandians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry and Education also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crime City. The average income tax rate is 5.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Post-Apocalyptic Wastelandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,491 trillion Bullets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Gambling, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 260,581 Bullets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Funding for education has been redirected into the military, nude art is becoming wildly popular, scenic tours are unheard of after most environmental laws were abolished, and organised sports are frowned upon as frivolous. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. A Post-Apocalyptic Wasteland's national animal is the Giant Mutant Lizard, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Stanismism.

A Post-Apocalyptic Wasteland is ranked 652nd in the world and 4th in The Communist Bloc for Rudest Citizens, with 372.24 Insults Per Minute.
