The Republic of Way Triat is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Wanda Miller with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.059 billion Way Triatians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Waygate. The average income tax rate is 37.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Way Triatian economy, worth 154 trillion pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Basket Weaving, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 50,415 pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more, the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians, and Wanda Miller is called 'Patches' at international summits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Way Triat's national animal is the cobra, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Empty Gods.

Way Triat is ranked 181,118th in the world and 275th in Oneid for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 48.6 Whatever.
