The Armed Republic of Wakabasa is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, state-planned economy, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed population of 625 million Wakabas have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wakaya. The average income tax rate is 63.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Wakabasan economy, worth 55.9 trillion Waks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is 89,374 Waks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Religious households enthusiastically use whips in private, evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, the "boy who cried wolf" policy makes sick people reluctant to call an ambulance, and thieves find battery shops juicier targets than banks. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wakabasa's national animal is the Bengal Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wakabasa is ranked 28,635th in the world and 105th in The Black Hawks for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 4,346.1 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
