The Commonwealth of Wesland is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by the Chancellor with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.131 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.

The tiny, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Athalem. The average income tax rate is 3.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Weslandish economy, worth a remarkable 1,188 trillion Dataris a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 193,843 Dataris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

The new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens, TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas, and violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, probably because of the absence of a police force. Wesland's national animal is the Weslandish Wild Hound, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Weslandish Rite Christianity.

Wesland is ranked 33rd in Osiris and 880th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with 2,037.95 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
