The Federation of DA WAAAAGH is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.012 billion Freebootas are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Spirituality, and Education are also considered important, while International Aid and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Da Camp. The average income tax rate is 34.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient DA WAAAAGH economy, worth 97.2 trillion Teefs a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 96,045 Teefs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Mandatory state-funded classes teach Libertarianism, politicians accepting drinks in bars are executed for taking bribes, war vets look after war animals, and at the edge of the final frontier space's biggest missile platform is about to unfold. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. DA WAAAAGH's national animal is the Squig, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

DA WAAAAGH is ranked 247,117th in the world and 99th in Kavonia for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -4.58 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
