The Federation of Wanabe is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Papewaio with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, strictly enforced bedtime, and vat-grown people. The compassionate, humorless population of 7.473 billion Wanabeans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 8.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wanabean economy, worth a remarkable 1,495 trillion talegoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 200,059 talegoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit, the nation's most "productive" diamond mine hasn't been operational for seven months, travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs, and the entire entry for Wanabe in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless'. Crime is totally unknown. Wanabe's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wanabe is ranked 3,168th in the world and 85th in The East Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 157,592.85 Standard Monetary Units.
