The Tree Branch and Star of Wansul is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its smutty television, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 11.251 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, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eleyesé. The average income tax rate is 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wansulian economy, worth a remarkable 2,157 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 191,755 Argónts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, many friends and relatives of Leader have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, the nation is wading into dangerous waters, and military funding has been stripped back. 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 45,100th in the world and 13th in The Democratika for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero valid endorsements.
