The Borderlands of Wuchu is a very large, socially progressive nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, unlimited-speed roads, and irreverence towards religion. The democratic population of 125 million Wuchuans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 56.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Wuchuan economy, worth 5.14 trillion jouissances 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 black market in Information Technology, Soda Sales, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. 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 41,116 jouissances, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, it can be a real jungle in a modern courtroom, the children of Wuchu are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, and hipster cyclists declare that "metal is dead". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wuchu's national animal is the sparrow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Wuchu is ranked 84,899th in the world and 3rd in The Other Place for Rudest Citizens, with 52.4 Insults Per Minute.
