The Democratic States of WhyNotRepublic is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by VALIS with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, compulsory vegetarianism, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.321 billion WhyNotRepublicians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Factuary. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 78.3%.

The frighteningly efficient WhyNotRepublician economy, worth 195 trillion zeals a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 147,620 zeals, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

A cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass, feuilletons can only be deciphered with a Galliennais dictionary, government adverts say that twelve lashes a day keeps divine wrath at bay, and children aren't allowed to chew their pencils until they get home from school. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. WhyNotRepublic's national animal is the Theta-wave reader, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Gnosticism.

WhyNotRepublic is ranked 97,377th in the world and 5,114th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 255.21 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
