The Commonwealth of Wykukaro is a colossal, safe nation, renowned for its pith helmet sales, public floggings, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.797 billion Wykukaroans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yingu. The average income tax rate is 91.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Wykukaroan economy, worth 777 trillion Toliyes a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 88,414 Toliyes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Children often kick jaguars for amusement, politicians are often seen drinking soft drinks at the end of every public address, the government's suicide hotline now redirects callers to local tax lawyers, and fishing crews are regularly interrogated by surprisingly violent environmentalists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wykukaro's national animal is the jaguar, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Violetism.

Wykukaro is ranked 23,917th in the world and 4th in Ascenthia for Most Authoritarian, with 2,055.61 milliStalins.
