The Matriarchy of Wolvertonia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by High-Wolfess with a fair hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.956 billion Wolvertonians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pauhsentropolis. The average income tax rate is 74.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wolvertonian economy, worth 689 trillion Padonias a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 139,058 Padonias, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, the nation doesn't need to go to war in order to acquire new territory, citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint, and there's a lot of mouth-breathers about these days. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wolvertonia's national animal is the Wolfess, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wolvertonia is ranked 8,580th in the world and 237th in The East Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 411.99 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
