The Empire of Walosia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Emperor David with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 11.996 billion Walosians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Waldovia. The average income tax rate is 63.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient A Walosian economy, worth a remarkable 1,833 trillion Denaris a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 152,805 Denaris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The number of deaths due to poor fungus identification is mushrooming, the government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly, dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines', and collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise. Crime is totally unknown. Walosia's national animal is the Gray Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Walosia is ranked 7,663rd in the world and 300th in Lazarus for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 322.86 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
