The Free Land of Washiwa is a huge, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 289 million Washiwans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Washiwa City. The average income tax rate is 31.4%.

The strong Washiwan economy, worth 17.6 trillion Luminas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 61,070 Luminas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

There's no such thing as bad publicity, teachers prefer to give 'Maybe, Maybe Not' tests when dealing with sensitive subjects, young criminals are told they'll go to bed without supper if they do it again, and NPCs in MMORPGs regularly interrupt cutscenes with OOC reminders that they aren't real people. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Washiwa's national animal is the Eagle, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Washiwa is ranked 90,403rd in the world and 261st in Conch Kingdom for Highest Food Quality, scoring 19.51 on the Meeshlin-Starr Index.
