The WZEU Governor of Ancian is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by King Jorund with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, anti-smoking policies, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 9.907 billion Ancianians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castle Ancian. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Ancianian economy, worth a remarkable 1,178 trillion Francoes a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 118,940 Francoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government funds large training centres to turn wolves into functioning members of society, appendix transplant figures have recently doubled, the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy, and the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ancian's national animal is the wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Methodism.

Ancian is ranked 149,711th in the world and 4,853rd in Osiris for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 38.9 Workforce Participation Rate.
