The Free Land of Washiwa is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ban on automobiles, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 278 million Washiwans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Washiwa City. The average income tax rate is 32.7%.

The very strong Washiwan economy, worth 16.8 trillion Luminas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 60,313 Luminas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Public incontinence is a growing problem amongst the nation's women, Rupert Bear is considered to be the most risqué TV programme in Washiwa, unemployed mercenaries drift the country looking for new careers, and the new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Washiwa's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Washiwa is ranked 61,486th in the world and 166th in Conch Kingdom for Most Developed, scoring 61.62 on the Human Development Index.
