The People's Republic of Wuureath is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic population of 14.449 billion Wuureathians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken morass — prioritizes Welfare, although Education, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 86.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Wuureathian economy, worth 361 trillion Kleets a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, extremely specialized black market in Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 25,033 Kleets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wuureath's national animal is the Ice Crab, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Wuureath is ranked 22,032nd in the world and 70th in Wintreath for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.13 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
