The United Socialist States of Wascoitan 044 is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles. The quiet, industrious population of 1.83 billion Wascoitan 044ians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 28.6%.
The sizeable but inefficient Wascoitan 044ian economy, worth 62.8 trillion Assembly notes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 34,332 Assembly notes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.
A blood-red mark on the doorframe means a building must be passed over for destruction, cars are banned, Members of Parliament are often found living in cardboard boxes, and marine biology students are shocked to discover that a whale is a mammal. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wascoitan 044's national animal is the Hydra, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
