The Tree Branch and Star of Wansul is a gargantuan, genial nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 11.468 billion Wansulians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eleyesé. The average income tax rate is 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wansulian economy, worth a remarkable 2,201 trillion Argónts a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 191,939 Argónts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All you have to do is pray to get into Wansul, community organizers have given up going door to door because nobody is home, old fossils give the tours at the parliamentary museum, and beggars lack pockets for spare change. Crime is totally unknown. Wansul's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is None.

Wansul is ranked 1,702nd in the world and 1st in The Democratika for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 20,915.02 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
