The Corporate Republic of Wealthatonia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Head CEO M'elon Aroma with an iron fist, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, infamous sell-swords, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.023 billion Wealthatonians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education, Administration, and Defense also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wealth City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Wealthatonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,735 trillion Store Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 288,064 Store Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,657,821 per year while the poor average 3,109, a ratio of 854 to 1.

Photographers have to apply for a license to photograph Head CEO M'elon Aroma, babies are increasingly seen as a luxury, signs saying "No Poor People or Weirdoes" are common outside shops and cafés, and children must be board certified to append "Jr" to their name. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Wealthatonia's national animal is the Leprechaun, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Wealthatonia is ranked 1,318th in the world and 32nd in Capitalist Paradise for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 15,660.03 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
