The Free Land of Washiwa is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 284 million Washiwans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Washiwa City. The average income tax rate is 32.4%.

The strong Washiwan economy, worth 17.1 trillion Luminas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 60,240 Luminas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

The new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", a fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion, there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, and discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Washiwa's national animal is the Eagle, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Washiwa is ranked 9,228th in the world and 11th in Conch Kingdom for Most Primitive, scoring 95.96 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
