The Free Land of Waatkane is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by es Cunpahach Zitys with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, ban on automobiles, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.121 billion Vyrsek are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zanab. The average income tax rate is 64.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Waatkanech economy, worth 407 trillion Gyvvsis a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 192,169 Gyvvsis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Light entertainment shows are light on actual entertainment, helicopter parenting is on the rise, the carbon footprint falls along with the human footprint during war, and sleeping on the job is recommended. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Waatkane's national animal is the Kytik Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Klawysin worship.

Waatkane is ranked 99,510th in the world and 6th in The Commonwealth Federation for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 49.74 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
