The Democratic Federal Republic of Willitya is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Jonathan Bourno with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, smutty television, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.789 billion Willityans 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Willitya City. The average income tax rate is 89.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Willityan economy, worth 281 trillion Willityan Credits a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 157,495 Willityan Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

History textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students, national parks have long lines of different gender-specific 'Porta-Pottys', young girls aren't having a ball but they are enjoying themselves, and water fights now end with thousands dead. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Willitya's national animal is the Beagle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Willitya is ranked 32,223rd in the world and 1,517th in The North Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 73 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
