The United Socialist Kingdom of Wangoe is a massive, genial nation, ruled by King Lewis II with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 4.804 billion wangoens are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Guvera City. The average income tax rate is 91.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wangoean economy, worth 624 trillion wangoen pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 130,025 wangoen pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's customary to greet the monarch with fist bumps, state media features lively debates such as whether pineapple on pizza is an acceptable topping, the nation turns a blind eye to human rights abuses in its quest for athletic supremacy, and many suspect that the 'Whinny The Plop' children's magazine contains covert criticism of King Lewis II. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wangoe's national animal is the reef shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Buddhism.

Wangoe is ranked 4,832nd in the world and 42nd in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Inclusive, scoring 224.03 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
