The Federal Republic of WORMICA is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The great WORM with an even hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, compulsory military service, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 3.566 billion Wormicans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of La chase town. The average income tax rate is 49.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming WORMICAian economy, worth 341 trillion WORM BUCKS a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 95,700 WORM BUCKS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Teenagers are told they're not thinking about sex enough, the act of reporting blasphemy is known as 'Orthodoxxing', sexually-starved male dinosaurs terrorise tourists during weekly breakouts from Mesozoic Park, and there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt. 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 148,773rd in the world and 38th in CISB for Most Extreme, scoring 12.35 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
