The -Former- GA Delegation of The Puddle Jumping Wads of Wrapper is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ambassador Wad Ari Alaz with an even hand, and remarkable for its restrictive gun laws, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.503 billion Wads have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wormhole City. The average income tax rate is 78.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Wrapperian economy, worth 863 trillion chewing gums a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 115,131 chewing gums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

An epidemic of unpopped kernels causes movie goers to gnash their teeth, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, the nation forgives those who are big enough to admit they made a mistake, and geosynchronous satellites are now manned by unpaid interns. Crime is totally unknown. The Puddle Jumping Wads of Wrapper's national animal is the slack-jawed jumping bean, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Puddle Jumping Wads of Wrapper is ranked 138,629th in the world and 5th in Stargate Command for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -124.15 on the Hayek Index.
