The Principality of Wigglers is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, keen interest in outer space, and soft-spoken computers. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 335 million Wigglersians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 48.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Wigglersian economy, worth 20.3 trillion Kandas 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 Retail, Automobile Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is 60,516 Kandas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, the poor are often seen pale and dizzy after selling their blood to make ends meet, heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-Kanda treacle machine, and body doubles and armed bodyguards escort witnesses to and from courtrooms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wigglers's national animal is the Sea Cucumber, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Wigglers is ranked 97,412th in the world and 3,415th in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 1,499.29 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
