The Republic of Waturon is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 750 million Waturonians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The minute, moralistic government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.9%.

The very strong Waturonian economy, worth 53.4 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Average income is 71,173 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.6 times as much as the poorest.

Victims of crime are viewed as less trustworthy than politicians, a suspicious number of John Smiths are known to donate to Waturonian politicians, students who refuse to pray are expelled from school, and denied drugs and entertainment the nation's youth are taking to petty crime to alleviate their boredom. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Waturon's national animal is the Wolverine.

Waturon is ranked 49,759th in the world and 1st in United1 for Rudest Citizens, with 71.02 Insults Per Minute.
