The Most Ancient and Noble House of Lancaster of Wessex is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Duke Lancaster with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 36.063 billion Lancastrians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Ancestral Estate Capital Region. The average income tax rate is 76.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lancaster of Wessexian economy, worth an astonishing 12,339 trillion Royal Crown Sterlings a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 342,154 Royal Crown Sterlings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Conspiracy theorists allege that the government is spying on them through their carbon monoxide detectors, the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, the endangered saltwater humpback peregrine falcon is only seen in captivity programs, and government officials have to mortgage their homes to make ends meet. Crime is totally unknown. Lancaster of Wessex's national animal is the peregrine falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is ceremonially Wessex Anglicanism.

Lancaster of Wessex is ranked 203,274th in the world and 5th in House of Lancaster of Wessex for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.54 Crimes Per Hour.
