The Principality of Walteren is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, compulsory military service, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working population of 436 million Walterens 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of King's Creek. The average income tax rate is 34.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Walteren economy, worth 29.7 trillion Marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Retail, and Gambling. Average income is 68,094 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Soylent products are an expensive commodity due to a lack of volunteers, human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants, the thin blue line is composed of picketing police officers demanding better pensions, and costumed characters wearing Maxtopian Grass leaves remind citizens that the government now sells the green stuff. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Walteren's national animal is the Walteren Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Walteren is ranked 171,220th in the world and 95th in Kantrias for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -7.07 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
