The Kingdom of Waterfall Island is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by MrWaterfall with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, compulsory vegetarianism, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cheerful population of 13.021 billion Waterfall Islandians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Social Policy, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of WaterfallCity. The average income tax rate is 67.2%.

The large but underdeveloped Waterfall Islandian economy, worth 631 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Gambling, Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 48,517 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Maths Professor Barbie is the most popular toy for boys and girls alike, the nation's green cities are indeed concrete jungles, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, and mothers drive their college-graduate children to work. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Waterfall Island's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Waterfall Island is ranked 233,682nd in the world and 119th in Nederland for Most Avoided, scoring 1.32 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
