The Democratic Republic of Waynorth is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 259 million Waynorthians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 54.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Waynorthian economy, worth 8.71 trillion marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 33,648 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Leader is too busy listening to praise to get any work done, park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, the Treasury has been accused of flushing money down the toilet, and road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Waynorth's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Waynorth is ranked 24,107th in the world and 284th in 10000 Islands for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.13 percentage of bribes refused.
