The Republic of Waldenes is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 702 million Waldenesians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Administration, and Welfare are also considered important, while Defense is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of High Walden. The average income tax rate is 69.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Waldenesian economy, worth 68.4 trillion Cruts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 97,485 Cruts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Waldenes's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, and the inside lane of every highway is for parked vehicles only. Crime is totally unknown. Waldenes's national animal is the Mountain Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Waldenes is ranked 193,243rd in the world and 7,963rd in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -10.57 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
