The Battle-Ready Republic of Wersh is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Hallon with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, infamous sell-swords, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 2.254 billion Wershians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Corlabelm. The average income tax rate is 69.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wershian economy, worth 385 trillion Houers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 171,094 Houers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, President Hallon is too busy listening to praise to get any work done, main battle tanks stalk the woods of Wersh in search of Sun Bears, and parole board directors light up a joint before telling hash-brownie baking grannies that they have to stay behind bars. Crime is totally unknown. Wersh's national animal is the Sun Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wersh is ranked 157,691st in the world and 6,043rd in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 43.9 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
