The Most Ancient and Noble House of Lancaster of Wessex is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Duke Lancaster with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 44.178 billion Lancastrians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Environment 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 84.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lancaster of Wessexian economy, worth an astonishing 15,220 trillion Royal Crown Sterlings a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 344,523 Royal Crown Sterlings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

This summer's chart-toppers sound almost the same as last year's, a passport is literally priceless, a flying elephant and The Duke Lancaster share the same nickname, and juvenile delinquents are fitter than ever. 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 40th in the world and 1st in House of Lancaster of Wessex for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 99.01 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
