The Fabled Republic of Wischland is a massive, genial nation, ruled by President Maria von Eisenmerk with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.803 billion Wischlandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fernimburg. The average income tax rate is 34.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wischlandian economy, worth 221 trillion Orchis a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 122,822 Orchis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Weekly religious services often resemble campaign rallies, government solves problems by tossing money at the nearest geek, builders across Wischland are blocked up with orders for new public loos, and the television adaptation of Jennifer Government is the most popular program in the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Wischland's national animal is the Great Horned Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Wischland is ranked 9,964th in the world and 125th in 10000 Islands for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 80,571.52 Standard Monetary Units.
