The Rogue Nation of White Walker 20 is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Suarez with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 3.833 billion White Walker 20ians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Summer Dream. The average income tax rate is 72.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient White Walker 20ian economy, worth 713 trillion bitcoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 186,161 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Churches frequently hold public 'contraception burnings', sermons are regularly interrupted by businessmen taking phone calls, the most popular stadium acts are one-off performances, and acute politicians deride opposition members for being obtuse. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. White Walker 20's national animal is the falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ion Television.

White Walker 20 is ranked 166,351st in the world and 388th in NationStates for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.16 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
