The Federation of Wanabe is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Papewaio with an even hand, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, compulsory vegetarianism, and national health service. The compassionate, humorless population of 7.447 billion Wanabeans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 8.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wanabean economy, worth a remarkable 1,486 trillion talegoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 199,596 talegoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation, the government spends millions of talegoes every year prosecuting spammers, the police strictly enforce off-limit zones for tourists, and political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act. Crime is totally unknown. Wanabe's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wanabe is ranked 47,358th in the world and 1,954th in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 96.56 on the Hayek Index.
