The Very Big Island of Wanga is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Jack Straightcow with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.802 billion Wangans 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Twanga. The average income tax rate is 59.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wangan economy, worth 429 trillion Bjdbidoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 153,123 Bjdbidoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Helping grandma with her Misgendering 101 homework is a national rite of passage, politicians accost strangers in the street to ask their problems, an alabaster statue of an ancient cat-deity takes pride of place in the centre of Twanga, and the news is showing footage of Jack Straightcow bullying an old man to the point of tears. Crime is totally unknown. Wanga's national animal is the Echidna, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wanga is ranked 100,839th in the world and 3,457th in Osiris for Most Extreme, scoring 18.31 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
