The Commonwealth of Washimi is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 633 million Washimians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.0%.

The very strong Washimian economy, worth 48.3 trillion Waschillings a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 76,301 Waschillings, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 295,632 per year while the poor average 13,497, a ratio of 21.9 to 1.

Video evidence of cruel animal experiments tends to be of poor quality, administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, even religious militants can be swayed by the power of #love, and failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Washimi's national animal is the Secretary Bird, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Washimi is ranked 34,135th in the world and 2nd in The Diplomatic Committee Of Nations for Most Politically Free, scoring 74.89 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
