The Kingdom of Watsoonia is a massive, genial nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.788 billion Watsoonians 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Camford. The average income tax rate is 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Watsoonian economy, worth 230 trillion Pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 129,017 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Businesses are forced to bring all work back within the nation's borders, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, and a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Watsoonia's national animal is the Labradoodle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Watsoonia is ranked 12,151st in the world and 527th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 2,978.54 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
