The Most Serene Republic of Waitiki is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 347 million Benders 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ba Sing Se. The average income tax rate is 39.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Waitikian economy, worth 36.6 trillion Dreams a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 105,410 Dreams, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

Protests are legal but strictly supervised, a performance of the hit musical "Mamma Tua" has been delayed after squatters were found sleeping in the orchestra pit, family bonding sessions are considered immoral and are banned, and vehicle strikes into low bridges are on the increase. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Waitiki's national animal is the Sponsor Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Waitiki is ranked 79,474th in the world and 949th in 10000 Islands for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 39.6 Effective Tax Rate.
