The Juggernaught War State of Warson is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Father with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 30.23 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 aren't funded at all. 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 14,572 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 Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 482,058 Bullets, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,514,979 per year while the poor average 4,339, a ratio of 1,040 to 1.

The nation's laws on image rights are amongst the strictest in the world, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, the nation's new Mylab space station is notorious for being the loneliest place above the planet, and the question of 'what is Father's favorite color?' has been given a priority rating of burnt-orange. 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 629th in the world and 27th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 42,175.98 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
