The Democratic Republic of Washington River City is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Madam President with a fair hand, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, complete absence of social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 28.532 billion Washingtonians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Public Transport. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Metropolitan Civic Center. The average income tax rate is 21.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Washingtonian economy, worth a remarkable 2,542 trillion United Queendom Blings a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 89,108 United Queendom Blings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children grow up long before the paperwork for their lemonade stands can be sorted out, there's no representation without taxation, the government prides itself on being smug and condescending to idiots, and Washington River City's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Washington River City's national animal is the Armadillo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of the Poison Mind.

Washington River City is ranked 245,830th in the world and 12th in The Sea Of Love for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -51.4 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
