The Federal Republic of Propwash is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.031 billion Propwashians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Corraine. The average income tax rate is 67.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Propwashian economy, worth a remarkable 1,119 trillion Propwash Dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 111,567 Propwash Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Families returning from international vacations are unable to get their children back into the country, Propwashian tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation, one tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, and the men in trenchcoats hanging around playgrounds are actually police officers. Crime is almost non-existent. Propwash's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Propwash is ranked 15,011th in the world and 365th in The East Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,592.73 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
