The Republic of Uaoie is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.549 billion Uaoieans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 61.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Uaoiean economy, worth 22.0 trillion bitcoins 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 slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, 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 14,227 bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Unwary hikers climbing the bluffs of Mount Uaoie City make great practice for foreign snipers, citizens select which government department gets their income tax bitcoins each year, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, and organ donation is compulsory. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Uaoie's national animal is the horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Uaoie is ranked 144,460th in the world and 3rd in Blackbats for Highest Poor Incomes, with 13,428.41 Standard Monetary Units.
