The Federation of Wanabe is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Papewaio with an even hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and compulsory vegetarianism. The compassionate, humorless population of 9.614 billion Wanabeans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The tiny, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 28.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Wanabean economy, worth a remarkable 2,065 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 214,880 talegoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens, it is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, and anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper. Crime is totally unknown. Wanabe's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wanabe is ranked 237,405th in the world and 8,277th in The East Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -14.42 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
