The Republic of Waldenes is a huge, safe nation, notable for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 811 million Waldenesians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, while Defense isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of High Walden. The average income tax rate is 72.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Waldenesian economy, worth 85.2 trillion Cruts a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 105,089 Cruts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

The legal minefield around ownership of fiction has demolished the publishing industry, the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, the government's religious works are headed by a New Age guru, and claiming that "my cousin said it was legal" is a common courtroom defense. Crime is totally unknown. Waldenes's national animal is the Mountain Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Waldenes is ranked 23,861st in the world and 572nd in The East Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 80.67 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
