The Eternal Promise of IW84U is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Miss Waiting with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 18.677 billion Patients are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Patience. The average income tax rate is 51.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Patient economy, worth a remarkable 1,969 trillion W8s a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 105,474 W8s, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is spending billions of taxpayer W8s to support the Tourism industry, all-natural foods are becoming a major fad, a weakened police force struggles to maintain law and order, and immigrant herding has become a national pastime. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. IW84U's national animal is the jay, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Waiting.

IW84U is ranked 85,037th in the world and 5th in The Nation of Nations and Friends for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 141,977 Standard Monetary Units.
