The Federation of Waffles the Dog is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 1.308 billion Waffles the Dogians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 43.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but sluggish Waffles the Dogian economy, worth 39.2 trillion boneses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Furniture Restoration, and Tourism. Average income is 29,952 boneses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Waffles the Dog's national animal is the golden retriever, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
