The Duchy of Wolemoer is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Duke Charles XII with an even hand, and renowned for its hatred of cheese, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 5.572 billion Wolemoerians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cerchester. The average income tax rate is 81.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Wolemoerian economy, worth 246 trillion Carolean Pounds a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 44,221 Carolean Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Waste is frequently shipped to other countries, the acceptance of acupuncture and other alternative therapies has needled the scientific community, the dish 'poisson avec poison' is only available on the black market, and sailors spend their shore leave helping old ladies cross the street. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wolemoer's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Christianity.

Wolemoer is ranked 161,873rd in the world and 2,867th in The East Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 96.9 billion Standard Monetary Units.
