The Sister Republics of Wallenburg is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Grand Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 7.595 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 89.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wallenburgian economy, worth a remarkable 1,246 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 Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 164,157 national CRUS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Baby boys who pick up pink crayons are sent to a psychiatric ward, one tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, fiscal policy hawks decry the sizable "panem et circenses" fund added to the public budget, and advert breaks are played at lower volumes to make them easier to ignore. 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 127,887th in the world and 3rd in The Nether for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -3.74 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
