The Deluded Hypocrisy of Wisconsota is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 34.911 billion Wisconsotans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — prioritizes Education, although Social Policy, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. The income tax rate is 100%.

The Wisconsotan economy, worth a remarkable 4,091 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 an impressive 117,200 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 800th in the world and 50th in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 4,830.54 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
