The Republic of Wirrabuk is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its digital currency, compulsory military service, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.446 billion Wirrabukians 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 government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Administration, Law & Order, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Industry are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.7%.

The strong Wirrabukian economy, worth 97.9 trillion One Liners a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 67,735 One Liners, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 264,998 per year while the poor average 11,794, a ratio of 22.5 to 1.

A new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, economists claim no news is good news, terrified tympanists are finding themselves on the front lines armed only with kettledrums, and an increasing number of citizens believe the world is flat. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force. Wirrabuk's national animal is the EU Vote, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Wirrabuk is ranked 95,835th in the world and 2,316th in The East Pacific for Most Stationary, with 40.32603669132 Days.
