The Democratic Republic of Werglum is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ann ODam with a fair hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, anti-smoking policies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.63 billion Werglumians 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.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Syrenead. The average income tax rate is 91.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Werglumian economy, worth 280 trillion Dracips a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 106,791 Dracips, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Life is short but human kindness is endless, foreign investment has dropped to a trickle after laws were passed preventing investors from taking their earnings abroad, human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants, and shirts-versus-skins games are now skins-versus-skins games. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Werglum's national animal is the Airedale Terrier, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is None.

Werglum is ranked 219,589th in the world and 7,858th in The East Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 8,756.94 Standard Monetary Units.
