The Republic of Whaydan is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its smutty television, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.331 billion Whaydanians 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rurg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.5%.

The powerhouse Whaydanian economy, worth 161 trillion Whaydahlers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 69,407 Whaydahlers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 239,760 per year while the poor average 14,694, a ratio of 16.3 to 1.

Skateparks can be found in every city, failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, nervous homeowners have been blamed for rising death rates amongst carol singers and locksmiths, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Whaydan's national animal is the arctic fox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Whaydan is ranked 153,786th in the world and 4th in Glacial Empire for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -8.31 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
