The Dom Pérignon Don of Wapistan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by YSL Dog with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, enslaved workforce, and feral children. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 4.456 billion wapistanians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny, 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 O'Block. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.0%.

The frighteningly efficient wapistanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,056 trillion money trees a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 237,050 money trees, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,148,173 per year while the poor average 3,075, a ratio of 698 to 1.

Nano-bears are the current fad sweeping the nation, college-level writing classes are taught by undergraduate editors of the school newspaper, card collectors duel to the death, and a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Wapistan's national animal is the bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Saint Pablo.

Wapistan is ranked 94,439th in the world and 53rd in The Brotherhood of Malice for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero valid endorsements.
