The Federal Republic of Propwash is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, daily referendums, and vat-grown people. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.211 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 73.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Propwashian economy, worth a remarkable 1,300 trillion Coles a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 106,513 Coles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Any reference to a higher being is punished with public shaming, adverts depict men giving birth while cursing the women who got them into trouble, hit TV show 'The eXecution Factor' is a critical success, and foreign policy often involves bullwhips and leather. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Propwash's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Propwash is ranked 11,756th in the world and 341st in The East Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,599 Tourists Per Hour.
