The United States of Woopa is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The democratic population of 239 million Woopans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 67.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Woopan economy, worth 1.73 trillion Whompdidomps a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 7,217 Whompdidomps, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, the government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced, high school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate, and third world countries are rich in "I Love Woopa City" t-shirts. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Woopa's national animal is the Harkeal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Woopa is ranked 188,175th in the world and 11th in Camp Half Blood for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -8.83 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
