The Plurinational Union of Waikuri is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kanawã Pytuna with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.848 billion Waikuri'nhens hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tendawaçu. The average income tax rate is 59.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Waikurian economy, worth 341 trillion Itás a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 88,851 Itás, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a lot of hot air coming from the Capitol Building, cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings, and nations that kill a Waikuri'nhen can expect a strongly worded letter. Crime is totally unknown. Waikuri's national animal is the Capybara, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Waikuri is ranked 241,904th in the world and 8,876th in Lazarus for Most Avoided, scoring 1.42 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
