The Nuclear Fallout of A Post-Apocalyptic Wasteland is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Avatar of Anarchist Stan with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 3.697 billion Post-Apocalyptic Wastelandians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny, corrupt government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Law & Order and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crime City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Post-Apocalyptic Wastelandian economy, worth 899 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 slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, Retail, and Information Technology. 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 243,214 Bullets, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 792,420 per year while the poor average 56,198, a ratio of 14.1 to 1.

T-shirts displaying a photo of Avatar of Anarchist Stan performing the Full-Monty are selling out, it is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow, the 'three Rs' have become the 'four Rs' with the addition of Rightful Thought, and bars are packed at all hours. 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 4,665th in the world and 60th in The Communist Bloc for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 22 Valid Endorsements.
