The Canine Paradise of Wanzabar Land is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Prince of Barkness with an iron fist, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, lack of airports, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.765 billion Doggos are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Outer Heaven. The average income tax rate is 92.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Good Boy economy, worth a remarkable 2,737 trillion Wanmarks 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 amazing 404,660 Wanmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, the military perceives nations hit by natural disasters as "easy pickings", an endless multinational bureaucracy connects the Red Bloc, and former slave-owners hope there are no hard feelings when they apply for jobs from their erstwhile charges. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wanzabar Land's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wanzabar Land is ranked 29,518th in the world and 16th in Eientei Gensokyo for Rudest Citizens, with 87.59 Insults Per Minute.
