The Equilism protectorate of Whamabama is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Richard Marks with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, frequent executions, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 26.803 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 2.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Whamabaman economy, worth a remarkable 4,262 trillion Equiliants a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 159,043 Equiliants, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 472,888 per year while the poor average 41,936, a ratio of 11.3 to 1.

The nation operates a "finders-keepers" policy with other nations' citizens, ships no longer sail as no one wants to encounter Whamabaman pirates, military training in Whamabama emphasizes the tactical advantages of stabbing backs, and little girls are in tears as Richard Marks confiscates their pink princess ballgowns. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Whamabama's national animal is the bearded clam, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Whamabama is ranked 101,202nd in the world and 58th in Equilism for Most Pro-Market, scoring 48 on the Rand Index.
