The Most Serene Republic of Walacan Republic is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Louis with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 3.391 billion Walacan Republicians 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, moralistic government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bunker City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 48.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Walacan Republician economy, worth 447 trillion Walacan Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 132,110 Walacan Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 460,321 per year while the poor average 27,605, a ratio of 16.7 to 1.

Street preachers spend more time condemning government bureaucracy than passers-by, teachers prefer to give 'Maybe, Maybe Not' tests when dealing with sensitive subjects, Walacan Republician tourists are banned from many nations due to their tendency to randomly explode, and children who believe in the tooth fairy are frequently shipped off to Bigtopia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Walacan Republic's national animal is the dolphin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Walacan Republic is ranked 18,154th in the world and 6th in The Hercules Corona Borealis Great Wall for Highest Average Incomes, with 132,110.26 Standard Monetary Units.
