The Enclaved Pious Estates of The Church of Wessex is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by The Most Revd Archbishop with a fair hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 22.823 billion adherents 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 large, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Education, with Welfare, Social Policy, and Environment also on the agenda, while Defense and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Cathedral of Saint Aldhelm. The average income tax rate is 70.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Church of Wessexian economy, worth a remarkable 1,729 trillion Ducal Stipend and the Tithes a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 75,771 Ducal Stipend and the Tithes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A life spent suffering in silence is considered noble, fireworks and other big bangs are forbidden during the newest public holiday, the nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, and a suspicious number of John Smiths are known to donate to Church of Wessexian politicians. Crime is totally unknown. The Church of Wessex's national animal is the peregrine falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Wessex Anglicanism.

The Church of Wessex is ranked 239,620th in the world and 5th in House of Lancaster of Wessex for Rudest Citizens, with 6.04 Insults Per Minute.
