The Federation of Wanabe is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Papewaio with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, rampant corporate plagiarism, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, humorless population of 7.017 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 30.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wanabean economy, worth a remarkable 1,452 trillion talegoes a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 206,994 talegoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Throwing a sickie is a serious crime, most households' childcare costs are higher than their mortgage payments, multiple polls have christened the newly-formed Filibuster Committee as "the least efficient government bureaucracy", and modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes. Crime is totally unknown. Wanabe's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wanabe is ranked 100,130th in the world and 3,674th in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 48 on the Rand Index.
