The Democratic Waters of Waterwise is a massive, safe nation, ruled by H-W-M Sanae Zander Bluegill with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 3.554 billion Waterborns have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goldfish Coast. The average income tax rate is 46.7%.

The very strong Waterwisean economy, worth 301 trillion Salmon a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 84,787 Salmon, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

The nation has become a pariah for giving pirates letters of marque, nose plugs are the latest Waterwisean fashion accessory, diaper sales are up, and people who stay late at the office often come home to find their own funeral being planned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Waterwise's national animal is the Carp, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Waterwise is ranked 42,959th in the world and 2,245th in Balder for Highest Average Incomes, with 84,787.34 Standard Monetary Units.
