The Community of Fellwieg is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 575 million Fellwiegians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fellwieg. The average income tax rate is 50.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Fellwiegian economy, worth 56.5 trillion Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 98,211 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

State officials tend to disappear after they forget to salute Leader's portrait, Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, the experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Jellyfish Dung" has been declared a national treasure, and a vast monorail network carries people all over the country. Crime is totally unknown. Fellwieg's national animal is the Jellyfish, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Fellwieg is ranked 19,348th in the world and 37th in Social Technocratic Union for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,356.75 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
