The Puddle Jumping Wads of Wrapper is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Wad Sam Attah with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.974 billion Wads 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wormhole City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Wrapperian economy, worth a remarkable 2,881 trillion chewing gums a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 206,231 chewing gums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Marijuana is legal in the privacy of your own home, therapists can always squeeze in another house-call, Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Wormhole City to enjoy their national art, and corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wrapper's national animal is the slack-jawed jumping bean, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wrapper is ranked 148,761st in the world and 49th in Stargate for Most Corrupt Governments, with 0.71 Kickbacks Per Hour.
