The 24-Hour-Cinderella of Wapistan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Goro Majima with a fair hand, and notable for its closed borders, pith helmet sales, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 1.547 billion Wapistanians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wappa Plains. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Wapistanian economy, worth 257 trillion Wapistinian Dius a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 166,423 Wapistinian Dius, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,111,150 per year while the poor average 9,438, a ratio of 117 to 1.

The nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, the new 'Who Wants To Be A Politician' election debate auditions are more popular than the debates themselves, Goro Majima is frequently seen begging critics to stop insulting the government, and politicians who misplace decimal points on expense reports are fired for gross incompetence. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Wapistan's national animal is the House Fly, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Gamerism.

Wapistan is ranked 226,058th in the world and 9,230th in The North Pacific for Most Devout, with 2.56 Prayers Per Hour.
