The Republic of WhatsamattaU is a colossal, orderly nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 6.319 billion WhatsamattaUians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10.0%.

The very strong WhatsamattaUian economy, worth 457 trillion Moose a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Cheese Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 72,453 Moose, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 232,810 per year while the poor average 17,085, a ratio of 13.6 to 1.

College students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to WhatsamattaU City to enjoy their national art, genetic researchers have been expelled, and military spending is on the increase. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. WhatsamattaU's national animal is the Flying Squirrel.

WhatsamattaU is ranked 52,520th in the world and 1st in Nine Circles of Hell for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
