The Waterloo Faculties

The Allied States of The Waterloo Faculties is a very large, pleasant nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 196 million Waterlooans, 195 million of whom are zombies, 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 tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 7.2%.

The strong Waterlooan economy, worth 20.7 trillion Bitcoins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 68,696 Bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

The military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles', centuries-old marble buildings are being torn down and replaced with corrugated steel wind tunnels, holiday gift-giving is often peppered with songs of praise to morally-questionable televangelists, and sleeping on the job is recommended. Crime is relatively low. The Waterloo Faculties's national animal is the Goose, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

The Waterloo Faculties is ranked 94,765th in the world and 31st in The Western Isles for Most Avoided, scoring 3.47 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
