The Independent Planet of Watkappa is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chancellor Jenna Che Helm the Delightful with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, smutty television, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 4.896 billion Watkappadi hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oluilu. The average income tax rate is 69.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Watkappade economy, worth 432 trillion Ntates a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 88,311 Ntates, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Satellite images show safe electoral constituencies in complete darkness, suit-clad businessmen have been taking advantage of the relaxed welfare qualifications by shopping with food stamps, politicians have been known to swim in pools filled with Ntates, and shady doctors seem to have impeccable records. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Watkappa's national animal is the Kawataro, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Watkappa is ranked 16,250th in the world and 220th in NationStates for Most Developed, scoring 86.15 on the Human Development Index.
