The Armed Republic of Whirostan is a large, efficient nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 79 million Whirostanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Public Transport, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 29.0%.

The powerhouse Whirostanian economy, worth 4.94 trillion seths a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 62,579 seths, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 215,523 per year while the poor average 13,309, a ratio of 16.2 to 1.

The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, universities are populated by the spawn of the upper classes, criminals always seem to be forewarned of police raids, and all writing must pass a censorship board before being allowed on the shelves. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Whirostan's national animal is the scorpion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Whirostan is ranked 149,229th in the world and 7,549th in The North Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 0.99 Quips Per Hour.
