The ✌ Minarchy ✌ of Weed is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Natalia Corvis with a fair hand, and remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, daily referendums, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 15.439 billion Weedians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cannabourg. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Weedian economy, worth a remarkable 3,301 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 213,867 dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,120,708 per year while the poor average 21,871, a ratio of 51.2 to 1.

Farting etiquette is taught in schools, the tomato-covered corpses that decorate the nation's cities are a favourite amongst morbid tourists, many friends and relatives of Natalia Corvis have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, and factory workers offered 20-hour shifts are expected to thank their bosses for the wonderful opportunity. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Weed's national animal is the crow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Rastafari.

Weed is ranked 168,075th in the world and 435th in Pacifica for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring -28.11 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
