The Theocracy of The Walrus Cult is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, enslaved workforce, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.589 billion Walrus Cultians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Environment also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Walrus Cultian economy, worth a remarkable 2,883 trillion Fishsticks 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. 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 amazing 379,982 Fishsticks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,202,877 per year while the poor average 91,582, a ratio of 13.1 to 1.

Organisations with 800 in their phone number are often raided by special forces, squeaky high prepubescent voices recite the patriotic poem "Hail to The Leader!" before each meal, infantry are nicknamed "mushrooms" because they get fed crap and are left in the dark, and bands of paramedics walk the streets looking for suspicious medical activity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Walrus Cult's national animal is the Narwhale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The Walrus Cult is ranked 84,224th in the world and 4,226th in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 233.36 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
