The Arch linux of Weccandia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Aaron Lawson with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and compulsory vegetarianism. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.407 billion Weccans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Weccana. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 26.8%.

The strong Weccandian economy, worth 89.2 trillion Weccanas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 63,380 Weccanas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 197,675 per year while the poor average 15,608, a ratio of 12.7 to 1.

Foreign lack of enthusiasm for Weccandian nose-flute disco metal is seen as a reasonable casus belli, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, shelters struggle to keep up with the endless intake of stray animals, and crossbow bolts fill the skies if so much as a sparrow flies overhead. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Weccandia's national animal is the Shibe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Platiniumism.

Weccandia is ranked 199,592nd in the world and 104th in The Hole To Hide In for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -6.6 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
