The Schizophrenic Acid Rhizomes of Wuchu is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Kotera with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, infamous sell-swords, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.072 billion 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 enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Sewage Plant. The average income tax rate is 70.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Wuchuan economy, worth 51.4 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, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Gambling. 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 47,902 jouissances, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, motorbike jousters live young and die fast, citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want, and large sections of Wuchu have been named national reserves to protect the native tribes living there. Crime is well under control. Wuchu's national animal is the sparrow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Wuchu is ranked 31,453rd in the world and 5th in The Other Place for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 5,143.78 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
