The Commonwealth of Wesland is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by the Chancellor with a fair hand, and remarkable for its restrictive gun laws. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.087 billion 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, Social Equality, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Athalem. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 31%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

The government is financing an extremely costly war against malaria, citizens are frequently searched for illegal weapons, retired racing Weslandish Wild Hounds are served truffles for breakfast, and space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down. Crime is relatively low. 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 59th in Philosophy 115 and 123,162nd in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring -153 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
