The Chemical Solution of Good Waffles is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Comrade Waffle with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.112 billion Waffle-Makers are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wafflegrad. The average income tax rate is 69.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Good Wafflesian economy, worth 119 trillion le monke tokens 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, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. 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 an impressive 107,131 le monke tokens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The Wafflegrad Film Festival recently voted 'Waffle-Maker Getting Hit By Football' as best film, Waffle-Makers must literally pay their respects to hear from their political representatives, it's best not to ask what goes into Wafflegrad Fried Chicken's secret blend of herbs and spices, and the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Good Waffles's national animal is the monke, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Return to Monke.

Good Waffles is ranked 206,446th in the world and 9th in United Nations of Everyone for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 375.43 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
