The Federal Republic of Washington Country is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Admon Zador with an even hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, frequent executions, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 960 million Washingtonians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Federal Reserve. The average income tax rate is 60.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Washingtonian economy, worth 139 trillion Federal Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 145,466 Federal Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, trust-fund babies line up for places in community college, for 25 Federal Credits tourists can gawk at the site of national tragedy, and bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Washington Country's national animal is the Federal Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Washington Country is ranked 11,152nd in the world and 2nd in Union of Free European Nations for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
