The Republic of WangaBunga is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Krungulus Rex with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, strictly enforced bedtime, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.745 billion WangaBungans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grunge City. The average income tax rate is 33.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse WangaBungan economy, worth 159 trillion V-Bucks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 91,217 V-Bucks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government spends twice as much reclaiming lost settlements from the sea as it could've on coastal defences, political activists are routinely executed, the nationalistic national anthem inspires citizens to literally spit at foreigners, and whenever pilots have to bail out the government bails out their company. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. WangaBunga's national animal is the TrashPanda, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Kult Of Krung.

WangaBunga is ranked 62,950th in the world and 3,263rd in the Rejected Realms for Highest Economic Output, with 159 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
