The Democratic People's Republic of Wascoitan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Clíona Ní Finn with an iron fist, and notable for its vat-grown people, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, cynical population of 3.962 billion Wascoitians are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Welfare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yexver. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Wascoitanian economy, worth 471 trillion Wascoitian Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 118,983 Wascoitian Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The sound of wooden legs echo throughout Wascoitan after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, royalist is the most offensive slur in the Wascoitanian language, foreign policy often involves bullwhips and leather, and orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wascoitan's national animal is the Hydra, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Wascoitan is ranked 228,711th in the world and 721st in The Communist Bloc for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.17 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
