The Dominion of Wessara is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Tirell Marksal with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful population of 8.027 billion Wessarans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Panther Hill. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Wessaran economy, worth a remarkable 2,004 trillion kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 249,708 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

W-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age, the phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon, tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, and schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wessara's national animal is the panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wessara is ranked 1,607th in the world and 53rd in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 96.58 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
