The Technocratic City-State of Freie Stadt Wiedheim is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 538 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, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wiedheim-Ringburg. The average income tax rate is 18.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Wiedheimer economy, worth 70.2 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 130,574 Batzens, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Religious turf wars have caused frustrated police to pray for divine intervention, Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, once-vitriolic celebrity chefs are now known for giving encouraging hugs to aspiring cooks, and the 'three Rs' have become the 'four Rs' with the addition of Rightful Thought. 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 44,245th in the world and 2,187th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 3,051.75 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
