The Glorious Republic of Waroklion is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Cornelius Ice with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, daily referendums, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate population of 1.83 billion Waroklionians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Waroklion City. The average income tax rate is 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Waroklionian economy, worth 282 trillion Waroks a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 154,192 Waroks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sex changes are routinely performed at Waroklion's hospitals, nose plugs are the latest Waroklionian fashion accessory, hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, and everyone wants to be on the guest list for diplomatic parties. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Waroklion's national animal is the Kingfisher, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Waroklion is ranked 12,951st in the world and 35th in The Union of Democratic States for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 9,509.67 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
