The People's Republic of Wapl is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Wapl with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, daily referendums, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 5.225 billion Waplians 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wapl City. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Waplian economy, worth a remarkable 1,067 trillion Devs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 204,343 Devs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Proletariat workers identify less with the hammer and sickle and more with the touchscreen and phone charger, doctors prescribe videos of political debates to patients with insomnia, sniffer dogs check train passengers for body odour, and criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wapl's national animal is the ge, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Wapl is ranked 2,046th in the world and 34th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 6,527.74 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
