The Republic of Wanderbuff is a large, efficient nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 56 million Wanderbuffians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.7%.

The thriving Wanderbuffian economy, worth 3.67 trillion Buxes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Automobile Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is 65,463 Buxes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 231,718 per year while the poor average 13,353, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, organ donation is compulsory, and artists regularly face criminal charges and art-burning parties are common. Crime is a problem. Wanderbuff's national animal is the Cow, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Wanderbuff is ranked 188,886th in the world and 186th in Refugia for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 44.13 Tourists Per Hour.
