The Dominion of The Waltch is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Walter Waltch with a fair hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 13.132 billion Waltchians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Social Policy, and International Aid. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Waltch City. The average income tax rate is 57.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Waltchian economy, worth 257 trillion Dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 19,597 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voting is compulsory, Nihilism has been named as The Waltch's national religion, The Waltch has designated The Waltch City as its capital city, and Walter Waltch has just been declared ruler of The Waltch in an international press conference. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Waltch's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Nihilism.

The Waltch is ranked 134,670th in the world and 1st in Invasion for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 1,257.57 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
