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 prohibition of alcohol, soft-spoken computers, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, cynical population of 4.798 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 and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yexver. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Wascoitanian economy, worth 582 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 121,489 Wascoitian Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Feuilletons can only be deciphered with a Galliennais dictionary, graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', a vast monorail network carries people all over the country, and companies struggle to cover for the hordes of employees on parental leave. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Wascoitan's national animal is the Hydra, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Marxism-Lesbianism.

Wascoitan is ranked 11,771st in the world and 187th in The Communist Bloc for Lowest Crime Rates, with 91.75 law-abiding acts per hour.
