Location: The Western Isles



Population10.534 billion



The Kingdom of Wellsia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, triple-decker prams, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 10.534 billion Wellsians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eddoras. The average income tax rate is 36.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Wellsian economy, worth a remarkable 2,795 trillion scales a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 265,367 scales, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

King often plays real life games of Tower Defense against hordes of angry villagers, putting a mustache on a banknote is considered defacing a national monument, citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, and alcoholism is the newest import from Dàguó. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wellsia's national animal is the Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Saculeum.

Wellsia is ranked 237,108th in the world and 166th in The Western Isles for Fattest Citizens, with 3.17 Obesity Rate.
