The Borderlands of Wuchu is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, keen interest in outer space, and frequent executions. The democratic population of 175 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, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 57.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Wuchuan economy, worth 7.67 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 Soda Sales, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 43,810 jouissances, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace, t-shirts displaying a photo of Leader performing the Full-Monty are selling out, future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence, and ersatz chicken has left the nation's citizens with a bad taste in their mouths. 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 59,386th in the world and 5th in The Other Place for Highest Poor Incomes, with 32,912.11 Standard Monetary Units.
