The United Kingdom of Wolemoer is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Scarcely Lethal with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 2.627 billion Wolemoerians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Palma. The average income tax rate is 69.5%.

The Wolemoerian economy, worth 108 trillion Union Coppers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is 41,245 Union Coppers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Discarded pennies litter the streets, new religious sects are squashed immediately by the government, farting etiquette is taught in schools, and the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people'. 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 92,882nd in the world and 4,141st in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 43.88 on the Rand Index.
