The Armed Republic of Wasi State is a massive, genial nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The quiet, industrious population of 2.305 billion Meatbags 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 66.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Meatbag economy, worth 111 trillion Pocket Sands a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Woodchip Exports industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 48,260 Pocket Sands, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read, teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, and corporations cut costs by taking away safety-features on their products. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wasi State's national animal is the Pain Canary, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Wasi State is ranked 169,435th in the world and 5,555th in Lazarus for Most Politically Free, scoring 41.9 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
