The Waluigis Waaanderful World of The Waaa is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by The Great and Powerful Waluigi with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, complete lack of prisons, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.998 billion Walians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Waaanderful City of Waluigi. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 26.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Walian economy, worth 369 trillion coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 184,880 coins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 956,327 per year while the poor average 19,418, a ratio of 49.2 to 1.

People are more interested in gossip about the private lives of politicians than their policies, the industries of The Waaa are coughing all the way to the bank, drivers regularly pull over for nonexistent police cars, and the government's official position on invasive species is 'who cares?'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Waaa's national animal is the koopa, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Church of Waaa.

The Waaa is ranked 149,443rd in the world and 6,422nd in The East Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 21.92 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
