The Federation of Wanabe is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Papewaio with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism, daily referendums, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, hard-working, humorless population of 8.205 billion Wanabeans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 31.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Wanabean economy, worth a remarkable 1,719 trillion talegoes a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 209,610 talegoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap, school uniforms are compulsory, ticket touts are blamed for the downfall of communism, and private pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are given away freely by the government. Crime is totally unknown. Wanabe's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wanabe is ranked 5,542nd in the world and 182nd in The East Pacific for Most Pacifist, with 147.84 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
