The Protectorate of The Wasatch is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 744 million Wasatchians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Salt Lake City. The average income tax rate is 84.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Wasatchian economy, worth 52.5 trillion Wasatch Dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 70,526 Wasatch Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is spending billions of taxpayer Wasatch Dollars to support "struggling" industries, terrorists are on a first name basis with the officials that stamp their passports, the government is interviewing for thousands of 'Religious Censor' positions, and there's no cure or sympathy for the common cold. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Wasatch's national animal is the Moose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Wasatch is ranked 162,183rd in the world and 268th in The Free Nations Region for Most Avoided, scoring 0.59 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
