The Dominion of Wessara is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Tirell Marksal with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 9.776 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 2,505 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 256,272 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Promising seven years of bad luck leads to seven years of community service, betting pennies on games of Go Fish is considered deviant, excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, and internal strife within the Red Bloc crumbles in the face of fiery rhetoric. 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 239,504th in the world and 8,184th in The East Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 6.09 Insults Per Minute.
