The Dystopian Future of MinnesotanWasteland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Jesse The Body Ventura with an even hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, keen interest in outer space, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 10.781 billion Minnesotans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Minneapolis. The average income tax rate is 1.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Wastelandian economy, worth a remarkable 4,219 trillion Pesos 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 Tourism, Information Technology, Retail, and Gambling. 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 391,350 Pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

A popular saying is "a chicken for every pot and an abortion clinic on every street", radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, more sidewalk is dedicated to animals than people, and society and government have been organized according to a feudal hierarchy. 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. MinnesotanWasteland's national animal is the Swordfish, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Nudism.

MinnesotanWasteland is ranked 872nd in the world and 1st in Land of Prosperity for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 11,244.43 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
