The Allied States of Wakaru is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Sovereign Eldrick Yvaine with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 2.099 billion Wakaruans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aureolus. The average income tax rate is 73.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Wakaruan economy, worth 88.4 trillion gildings a year, is highly specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 42,127 gildings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears, politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament, and kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wakaru's national animal is the Red Tail Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Wakaru is ranked 187,253rd in the world and 356th in Conch Kingdom for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -3.83 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
