The Deluded Hypocrisy of Wisconsota is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 31.375 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, with Social Policy, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but inefficient Wisconsotan economy, worth a remarkable 3,123 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 99,550 mud patties, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, fruit pickers with degrees in bapher psychology are a common sight, school football matches are usually five-a-side, and royalist is the most offensive slur in the Wisconsotan language. Crime is totally unknown. Wisconsota's national animal is the bapher, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wisconsota is ranked 87,091st in the world and 4,385th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,158.02 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
