The Military Junta of The Fascist Waffle Empire is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Field Marshall Baudoin Leopold with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 3.354 billion Waffles are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brussels-Antwerpen. The average income tax rate is 73.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Waffle economy, worth 796 trillion Waffles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 237,344 Waffles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

It's usual for grandparents to stay in the family home with their descendants but younger children are often frightened of them, Waffle housewives become unusually flustered when thinking about Field Marshall Baudoin Leopold, it's always rabbit season, and children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Fascist Waffle Empire's national animal is the Golden eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Catholicism.

The Fascist Waffle Empire is ranked 83,836th in the world and 311th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Pro-Market, scoring 47.11 on the Rand Index.
