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 rum-swilling pirates, infamous sell-swords, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 9.655 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 also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crime City. The average income tax rate is 7.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Post-Apocalyptic Wastelandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,549 trillion Bullets a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 264,008 Bullets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Commemorative mugs remembering last year's Black Friday Crockery Riots are a best seller this year, alcoholism is the newest import from Dàguó, chalkboards are replaced with billboards in the classroom, and the government response to disaster victims starving for bread is "let them eat stale cake". 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 1,892nd in the world and 9th in The Communist Bloc for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 67,501.3 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
