The Federal Republic of Propwash is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, avant-garde cinema, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 14.067 billion Propwashians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Corraine. The average income tax rate is 77.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Propwashian economy, worth a remarkable 1,459 trillion Coles a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 103,751 Coles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nuclear submarines have been deployed to protect the nation's banana supply, nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more, Leader's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, and things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Propwash's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Propwash is ranked 45,019th in the world and 1,276th in The East Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 3.39 Bank.
