The Ultimate Evil Badass Nation of Wurplestan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Ravik Lundunborg with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory gun ownership, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 1.059 billion Wurplestanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ENMA-6. The average income tax rate is 71.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Wurplestanian economy, worth 128 trillion Struups 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 large, well-organized black market in Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. 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 an impressive 121,418 Struups, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The words 'private' and 'enterprise' must never appear in the same sentence, it turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage, the military is researching proton packs and PK-meters to combat "unseen enemy forces", and the Counter-Terrorism Unit has been nicknamed "Big Bad Wolf" for its tendency towards urban demolition. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Wurplestan's national animal is the Long horned Elephant Toad, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Temporary Spiritage.

Wurplestan is ranked 199,705th in the world and 8,765th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -13.71 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
