The Commonwealth of Wellandy is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its national health service and strictly enforced bedtime. The compassionate, democratic population of 251 million Wellandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 30.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Wellandian economy, worth 13.1 trillion welland dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 52,311 welland dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, the study of medicine is popular throughout Wellandy, a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, and East Lebatuckese luxury goods are plundered by the working class of Wellandy. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wellandy's national animal is the beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wellandy is ranked 159,079th in the world and 6,623rd in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.43 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
