The Federation of Wanabe is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Papewaio with an even hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, national health service, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 4.509 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 prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 27.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Wanabean economy, worth 810 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 impressive 179,860 talegoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Members of the government all have oddly similar anecdotes about their childhoods, nine out of ten citizens of Wanabe answered 'nuclear safety inspector' when asked their occupation, the rich tend their gardens inside gated urban farming communities, and criminal rehabilitation takes place in re-education centers. Crime is totally unknown. Wanabe's national animal is the fox, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Wanabe is ranked 164,674th in the world and 6,213th in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 35.95 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
