The NWC Republic of Wunderstrafanstalt is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Relfeir Calvirra with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 2.667 billion Wunderstrafanstaltians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rescada. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Wunderstrafanstaltian economy, worth 590 trillion Helters a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 221,482 Helters, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,036,166 per year while the poor average 28,282, a ratio of 36.6 to 1.

Cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, school kids who pretend to drive imaginary cars get a social worker and a police observer assigned to them, almost all of the nation's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, and it's normal to start working life with crippling financial debt. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Wunderstrafanstalt's national animal is the Corinder, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Maxbarrian.

Wunderstrafanstalt is ranked 23,707th in the world and 1,309th in The North Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 4,591.49 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
