The Schizophrenic Acid Rhizomes of Wuchu is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Kotera with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, lack of airports, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.06 billion Wuchuans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Sewage Plant. The average income tax rate is 71.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Wuchuan economy, worth 45.8 trillion jouissances 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 slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Soda Sales. 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 43,203 jouissances, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children dream of becoming physicians and physicists, the new intercity submarine SSN Sparrow Warrior instills terror in claustrophobic travellers, smoking is banned in public areas, and factories are regularly demolished to make way for low-cost housing areas. Crime is almost non-existent. Wuchu's national animal is the sparrow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Wuchu is ranked 43,958th in the world and 1st in The Other Place for Largest Black Market, with 3.44 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
