The Erudite Scholars of Wisdoms and Knowledges is a massive, safe nation, ruled by The Council of Equations and Expressions with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate population of 1.491 billion Wisdomians and Knowledgians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wisdomia. The average income tax rate is 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wisdomian and Knowledgian economy, worth 172 trillion iq units a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 115,541 iq units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma, Jennifer Government is a bestseller, and the television adaptation of Jennifer Government is the most popular program in the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wisdoms and Knowledges's national animal is the snowy owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Algebra or Geometry.

Wisdoms and Knowledges is ranked 224,024th in the world and 8,562nd in The East Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -14.07 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
