The Community of WhaDeva is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, complete lack of prisons, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 247 million WhaDevans enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Spirituality, with Industry and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Education aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.9%.

The all-consuming WhaDevan economy, worth 19.0 trillion Shrugs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Pizza Delivery, and Tourism. Average income is 76,955 Shrugs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 398,065 per year while the poor average 8,082, a ratio of 49.2 to 1.

Where your food came from is an unknowable mystery, genetic research has been halted, foreigners are treated with great suspicion, and terrorists are on a first name basis with the officials that stamp their passports. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. WhaDeva's national animal is the Manatee, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

WhaDeva is ranked 24,608th in the world and 1st in Eternal Unicorn for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 4.65 Bank.
