The Rogue Nation of Freie Stadt Wiedheim is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its digital currency, smutty television, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 352 million Wiedheimer are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wiedheim-Ringburg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Wiedheimer economy, worth 42.0 trillion Batzens a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 119,407 Batzens, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians accepting drinks in bars are executed for taking bribes, exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, gun-wielding criminals always wear appropriate eye and ear protection, and census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate. Crime is almost non-existent. Freie Stadt Wiedheim's national animal is the Falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Freie Stadt Wiedheim is ranked 134,829th in the world and 6,933rd in The North Pacific for Most Pacifist, with 14.63 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
