The Allied States of Wakaru is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Sovereign Eldrick Yvaine with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.53 billion Wakaruans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aureolus. The average income tax rate is 76.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Wakaruan economy, worth 232 trillion gildings a year, is highly specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Tourism. Average income is 51,339 gildings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Abortion is only legal in unusual circumstances, gun owners are skilled at everything except shooting, increasing inclusiveness is a sign of the times, and legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wakaru's national animal is the Red Tail Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Wakaru is ranked 196,664th in the world and 461st in Conch Kingdom for Most Patriotic, with 5.51 flags saluted per person per day.
