The Undercover Skeleton of Will-o-the-wisp is a gargantuan, orderly nation, renowned for its absence of drug laws and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-working, cynical population of 15.517 billion Will-o-the-wispians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The medium-sized, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Spirituality, and Social Policy. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 26.2%.

The strong Will-o-the-wispian economy, worth 635 trillion ignis erraticuses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Automobile Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 40,923 ignis erraticuses, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 273,228 per year while the poor average 2,321, a ratio of 117 to 1.

Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Will-o-the-wisp's national animal is the Jack-o'-lantern, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Will-o-the-wisp is ranked 97,347th in the world and 1st in Super Secret for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,043.82 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
