The Battle-Ready Republic of Wersh is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Hallon with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 2.982 billion Wershians 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, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Corlabelm. The average income tax rate is 69.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wershian economy, worth 510 trillion Houers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 171,331 Houers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Parole board directors light up a joint before telling hash-brownie baking grannies that they have to stay behind bars, prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back, and the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms. Crime is totally unknown. Wersh's national animal is the Sun Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wersh is ranked 26,206th in the world and 455th in The East Pacific for Most Stationary, with 500.3901658612 Days.
