The Republica of Wilfred Test is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jennifer Moore with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 8.302 billion are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Archer's Bow. The average income tax rate is 70%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, Wilfred Test's airwaves are dominated by corporate-backed commercial radio, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, and local executives are seen on the corner with cardboard signs reading "will oppress the masses for food". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wilfred Test's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is No Official Religion, and its currency is the Quirke.

Wilfred Test is ranked 2nd in Black Mesa Islands and 2,294th in the world for Best Weather, with 245 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
