The Sharehold of Waldent is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Oscar-Frederick Montgomery with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 890 million Waldentians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The relatively small, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Guildford. The average income tax rate is 24.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Waldentian economy, worth 129 trillion Kints a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 145,658 Kints, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works, looting and pillaging are now considered vital intelligence-gathering activities, the government strictly regulates whale harvest quotas, and the hills are alive with the sound of ringtones. Crime is well under control. Waldent's national animal is the Bear.

Waldent is ranked 79,006th in the world and 48th in 21st Century Rome for Highest Crime Rates, with 8.18 Crimes Per Hour.
