The Equilism protectorate of Whamabama is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Richard Marks with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, parental licensing program, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 23.99 billion Whamabamen 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 tiny government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oured. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Whamabaman economy, worth a remarkable 3,545 trillion Equiliants a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 147,793 Equiliants, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 473,532 per year while the poor average 34,999, a ratio of 13.5 to 1.

Litter collection has replaced fast food as the most popular after-school job, government officials across Whamabama are being "encouraged" to adopt bearded clams to set an example for the populace, the airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, and the ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Whamabama's national animal is the bearded clam, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Whamabama is ranked 22,673rd in the world and 34th in Equilism for Smartest Citizens, with 56.58 Quips Per Hour.
