The Republic of Wagrurg is a very large, cultured nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, absence of drug laws, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, democratic population of 164 million Wagrurgians 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 large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 67.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Wagrurgian economy, worth 10.4 trillion silvers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Automobile Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 63,464 silvers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, kids these days know how to throw a proper punch, the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, and the government advises foreign diplomats to speak softly and carry a big bag of cash. Crime is totally unknown. Wagrurg's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wagrurg is ranked 154,445th in the world and 175th in The Leftist Assembly for Rudest Citizens, with 40.73 Insults Per Minute.
