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 sprawling nuclear power plants, ubiquitous missile silos, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.023 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 Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goldfish Coast. The average income tax rate is 44.4%.

The very strong Waterwisean economy, worth 168 trillion Salmon a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is 83,467 Salmon, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, employees who skip lunch to avoid sub-par cafeteria food risk getting fired, the government regularly publishes lengthy reports on its own excessive recordkeeping, and business leaders commend the government for enacting an emissions reduction strategy that reduces no Waterwisean emissions at all. 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 37,214th in the world and 1,069th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 62.3 on the Human Development Index.
