The Dictatorship of Whakl Backs is a huge, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 643 million Whakl Backsians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 43.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Whakl Backsian economy, worth 6.13 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 9,533 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Whakl Backs's national animal is the cow.

Whakl Backs is ranked 1,663rd in the world and 3rd in Forest for Most Authoritarian, with 12,121.34 milliStalins.
