The Tenth Birthday Party of Walbard is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by HIRM King Carlisle I with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, unlimited-speed roads, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful population of 19.895 billion Walbardians 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 minute government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Healthcare and Environment also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Walbardian economy, worth a remarkable 3,487 trillion Walbardian Viras a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 175,309 Walbardian Viras, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Online weather reports are predicting five years of glorious sunshine for Walbard, shanty towns of homeless immigrants are the ideal recruiting ground for terrorist organisations, eminent domain has been abolished, and gardeners must genetically test weeds for unique traits before digging them up. Crime is totally unknown. Walbard's national animal is the Walbardian Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Secular Humanism.

Walbard is ranked 59,736th in the world and 1st in Walbard for Most Authoritarian, with 0.29 Stalins.
