The Commonwealth of Wesland is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by the Chancellor with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.036 billion Weslanders enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

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. The average income tax rate is 53%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

Heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, international tensions are high as Wesland threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, and the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics. 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 8th in Philosophy 115 and 4,764th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 7 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
