The Republic of Waldenes is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.156 billion Waldenesians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Defense receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of High Walden. The average income tax rate is 75.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Waldenesian economy, worth 112 trillion Cruts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. Average income is 97,652 Cruts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The leading national news source is 'my cousin Billy-Bob on MyFace', school lockers are filled with fancy underwear, bins outnumber trees in city parks, and mandatory updates on software drivers often bring life to a halt. Crime is totally unknown. Waldenes's national animal is the Mountain Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Waldenes is ranked 8,326th in the world and 244th in The East Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 7,318.7 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
