The Most Ancient and Noble House of Lancaster of Wessex is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by The Duke Lancaster with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 37.517 billion Lancastrians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Environment and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Ancestral Estate Capital Region. The average income tax rate is 77.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lancaster of Wessexian economy, worth an astonishing 12,887 trillion Royal Crown Sterlings a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 343,499 Royal Crown Sterlings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Attempts to inform people about their unclaimed property are often mistaken for telephone scams, Lancaster of Wessex's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, The Duke Lancaster can't hear a thing when the unwashed masses throw rocks at the new state limousine, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. Crime is totally unknown. Lancaster of Wessex's national animal is the peregrine falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is ceremonially Wessex Anglicanism.

Lancaster of Wessex is ranked 593rd in the world and 2nd in House of Lancaster of Wessex for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 77.53 Whatever.
