The United Republic States of Wentsworth is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by President Richard Carter with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, complete lack of prisons, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 19.077 billion Wentsworthians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canberra. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Wentsworthian economy, worth an astonishing 12,818 trillion Austars a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 671,927 Austars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Customer satisfaction with online delivery services is at an all time high, the transit system is throwing poor people under the bus, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and coat closets are being re-branded as bedrooms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Wentsworth's national animal is the Eaglehawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Wentsworth is ranked 244,212th in the world and 141st in New Western Empire for Most Inclusive, scoring 6.15 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
