The Dominion of Wessara is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Tirell Marksal with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 8.205 billion Wessarans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Panther Hill. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Wessaran economy, worth a remarkable 2,054 trillion kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 250,424 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The endangered saltwater humpback panther is only seen in captivity programs, remote-control hang-gliding scarecrows patrol the skies to keep songbirds from leaving the nation's borders, sex changes are routinely performed at Wessara's hospitals, and parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wessara's national animal is the panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wessara is ranked 207,805th in the world and 8,141st in The East Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.19 Crimes Per Hour.
