The Deluded Hypocrisy of Wisconsota is a gargantuan, safe nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 33.3 billion Wisconsotans 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — prioritizes Education, although Social Policy, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but inefficient Wisconsotan economy, worth a remarkable 3,231 trillion mud patties a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 97,034 mud patties, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Royalist is the most offensive slur in the Wisconsotan language, the constant playing of Merry Birthday on Wisconsotan radio has led to calls for the song to be classified as a crime against humanity, construction workers evacuate work sites after finding sharp rocks on the ground, and no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed. Crime is totally unknown. Wisconsota's national animal is the bapher, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wisconsota is ranked 35,261st in the world and 1,640th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 70.7 on the Human Development Index.
