The Colony of Weatherly is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 1.756 billion Weatherlyians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 88.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Weatherlyian economy, worth 192 trillion marks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 109,682 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The beauty of coastal towns is marred only slightly by all the closed-down storefronts, it's best not to ask what goes into Weatherly City Fried Chicken's secret blend of herbs and spices, excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, and Leader spends weekends doing the laundry of foreign leaders. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Weatherly's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Weatherly is ranked 153,357th in the world and 6,361st in the South Pacific for Most Devout, with 4.84 Prayers Per Hour.
