The Socialist Coupdom of Wanasnaswa is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Revolutionary Council with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 7.583 billion Wanasnaswans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ržo. The average income tax rate is 73.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wanasnaswan economy, worth a remarkable 1,016 trillion Dollars 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 large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. 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 an impressive 134,028 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Exceptionally talented workers are praised more than Revolutionary heroes, politicians frequently make unusual poses during speeches in hopes of inspiring the next internet fad, soldiers must key in their passwords every time they want to reload their weapons, and the voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wanasnaswa's national animal is the Wanasnaswan Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Wanasnaswa is ranked 93,845th in the world and 27th in Abydos for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 1,896.71 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
