The Democratic States of WhyNotRepublic is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Los Angelos Delta Mu Bet Prime s1 with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.638 billion WhyNotRepublicians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Factuary. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 77.2%.

The frighteningly efficient WhyNotRepublician economy, worth 663 trillion zeal prime Err auto-FASC BAHNermAHNs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 251,671 zeal prime Err auto-FASC BAHNermAHNs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,127,465 per year while the poor average 34,780, a ratio of 32.4 to 1.

Meteorologists are instantly recognizable from their luxury cars and jewelry, mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of Theta-wave readers and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry, forest fires have dropped dramatically as there are hardly any forests left, and citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow. Crime is totally unknown. WhyNotRepublic's national animal is the Theta-wave reader, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Gnosticism.

WhyNotRepublic is ranked 8,723rd in the world and 425th in The North Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 116 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
