The Federation of Wanabe is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Papewaio with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, humorless population of 8.689 billion Wanabeans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 46.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wanabean economy, worth a remarkable 1,852 trillion talegoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 213,223 talegoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime, court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs, the Great Wanabean Melting Pot boils out ethnic heritage, and the tawdry celebrity gossip section has moved to the front page of most newspapers. Crime is totally unknown. Wanabe's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wanabe is ranked 9,143rd in the world and 153rd in The East Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 1,852 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
