The Same Foolish Baby Antics of The Wahs is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Big Baby with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 29.497 billion Wahsians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Francisco. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 86.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Wahsian economy, worth a remarkable 5,625 trillion Cry Babies a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 190,721 Cry Babies, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,001,510 per year while the poor average 19,420, a ratio of 51.6 to 1.

The full title of Hon Big Baby Vcte Mgve MF SFBAWLM GCWE runs to several pages, pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits, if a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it... Wahsian satellites can detect it, and the world outside is only known of in folklore. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Wahs's national animal is the Sniffling Whiners, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Mother Goose.

The Wahs is ranked 5,617th in the world and 3rd in Same Foolish Baby Antics for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 8,280.94 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
