The Sister Republics of Wallenburg is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by the Grand Council with a fair hand, and renowned for its public floggings, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 9.08 billion Wallenburgians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Independence. The average income tax rate is 89.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Wallenburgian economy, worth a remarkable 1,508 trillion national CRUS a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 166,183 national CRUS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

The regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious, powerful x-ray machines used by the Customs Department can see into the homes of nearby residents, and a cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wallenburg's national animal is the creeper, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Wallenburg is ranked 11,612th in the world and 349th in The East Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 166.36 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
