The Democratic States of WhyNotRepublic is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by VALIS with a fair hand, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.711 billion WhyNotRepublicians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Factuary. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 82.7%.

The frighteningly efficient WhyNotRepublician economy, worth 266 trillion zeals a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 155,882 zeals, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 501,372 per year while the poor average 36,708, a ratio of 13.7 to 1.

Gambling is outlawed, the nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents, the law forbids arson, murder, and low-quality cheese, and small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. WhyNotRepublic's national animal is the Theta-wave reader, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Gnosticism.

WhyNotRepublic is ranked 143,863rd in the world and 8,044th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 48.04 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
