Location: Band Camp

Regional Influence: Superpower


The Big Muddy of Please Walk Forward is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 26.924 billion walk-ins enjoy great social freedoms and frequent elections, where the majority of the populace regularly votes to increase its benefits at the expense of various hapless minorities.

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pewadotes. The average income tax rate is 70.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Walker economy, worth 810 trillion pawafs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 30,117 pawafs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of Pewadotes, even the most lowly council pen-pusher has the same political power as a senior minister, and Forwardism has been named as Please Walk Forward's national religion. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Please Walk Forward's national animal is the elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Forwardism.

Please Walk Forward is ranked 120,376th in the world and 3rd in Band Camp for Smartest Citizens, with 30.82 quips per hour.
