The Federal Republic of WORMICA is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The great WORM with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, devout population of 2.119 billion Wormicans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of La chase town. The average income tax rate is 41.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving WORMICAian economy, worth 194 trillion WORM BUCKS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 91,910 WORM BUCKS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty, and the WORMICA Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. WORMICA's national animal is the WORM, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Wormise tribal.

WORMICA is ranked 34,940th in the world and 19th in CISB for Most Developed, scoring 63.84 on the Human Development Index.
