The Watchfires of Wrongstates is a gargantuan, orderly nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 16.651 billion Wrongstatesians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 58.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Wrongstatesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,459 trillion $$s a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 87,651 $$s, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The country is rumored to be a Brancalandian puppet state, war vets look after war animals, police conduct weekly raids looking for contraband cheeseburgers, and restaurateurs put a lot of effort into persuading customers to accept wafer-thin mints. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wrongstates's national animal is the Dolly Varden, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Wrongstates is ranked 43,959th in the world and 1st in Iron Curtain for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 3,356.2 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
