The Commonwealth of Wesland is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by the Chancellor with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.704 billion Weslanders are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Athalem. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 48%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

Rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million Dataris of property damage, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, the airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. Crime is totally unknown. Wesland's national animal is the Weslandish Wild Hound, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Weslandish Rite Christianity, and its currency is the Datari.

Wesland is ranked 79th in Philosophy 115 and 106,003rd in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.007 Stalins.
