The Illegally banjected nation of Wopsters is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Sauron with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, keen interest in outer space, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, devout population of 17.642 billion Woppieses are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of FRA. The average income tax rate is 45.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Wopstersian economy, worth a remarkable 1,138 trillion NESES a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 64,525 NESES, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury, signs of extraterrestrial life are just foreign astronauts evading Wopstersian justice, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, and the sparkling rainbow has become a symbol of far-right extremism. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wopsters's national animal is the Onder, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Mordor.

Wopsters is ranked 52,034th in the world and 4th in Founderless for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 2,291.96 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
