The Free Land of The Playa Wastes is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Larry's Hat with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.217 billion Burners hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Black Rock City. The average income tax rate is 27.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Playa Wastesian economy, worth 426 trillion Gifts a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 132,574 Gifts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Textbooks are exactly twice as heavy as they used to be, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, and the derisively named "Morlocks of Moria" futilely demand time in the sun. Crime is totally unknown. The Playa Wastes's national animal is the Sparkle Pony, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Principals.

The Playa Wastes is ranked 5,988th in the world and 203rd in 10000 Islands for Most Influential, scoring 7,427 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
