The Juggernaught War State of Warson is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Father with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 25.541 billion Wariors are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Bunker. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Warsonian economy, worth an astonishing 11,757 trillion Bullets a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 460,352 Bullets, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,799,778 per year while the poor average 33,591, a ratio of 83.3 to 1.

The government response to disaster victims starving for bread is "let them eat stale cake", maintaining economic growth is no laughing matter, labour strikes are routinely squashed by police, and vitriolic divorce proceedings have become prime-time television. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Warson's national animal is the wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Warson is ranked 17,309th in the world and 484th in the Rejected Realms for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
