The Republic of Watcheria is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 508 million Watcherians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Education, with Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Watchalum. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.5%.

The strong Watcherian economy, worth 31.1 trillion Watchlings a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 61,212 Watchlings, with the richest citizens earning 7.1 times as much as the poorest.

Most households' childcare costs are higher than their mortgage payments, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, cheap textbooks have replaced coasters at college ragers, and a popular saying is "a chicken for every pot and an abortion clinic on every street". Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Watcheria's national animal is the Watcher, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Watcheria is ranked 168,371st in the world and 1st in The Commons for Highest Economic Output, with 31.1 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
