The Traveling Adventures of WA Klopstock is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.119 billion WA Klopstockians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of WA Klopstock City. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.
The frighteningly efficient WA Klopstockian economy, worth a remarkable 1,865 trillion Romanticist Novels a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 132,143 Romanticist Novels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Government buildings are being cleansed for anything that might have racist connotations, a well-funded social safety net protects the unfortunate, the government is spending millions on alternative clean-burning fuels, and TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. WA Klopstock's national animal is the Lemming, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
