The Dominion of Wessara is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Tirell Marksal with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, cheerful population of 9.694 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 2,481 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 255,938 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

W-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, the endangered saltwater humpback panther is only seen in captivity programs, and the police have reaffirmed their tough stance on drugs. 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 35th in the world and 3rd in The East Pacific for Most Secular, with 99.41 Atheism Rate.
