The Lucky Holy Blue of Weburya is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by John Smith with a fair hand, and renowned for its digital currency, rampant corporate plagiarism, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 1.464 billion Weburyans 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 large, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Weburya City. The average income tax rate is 75.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Weburyan economy, worth 208 trillion gold bars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 142,188 gold bars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Nerds everywhere are rejoicing as they are reunited with their computers, tumbleweeds made of litter adorn city streets, doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, and new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Weburya to be bombproof. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Weburya's national animal is the monster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Weburyanism.

Weburya is ranked 19,157th in the world and 593rd in the South Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 63.71 Quips Per Hour.
