The United Kingdom of Weihbach is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Winston V with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 4.273 billion Weihbachians 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 enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Felses. The average income tax rate is 74.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Weihbachian economy, worth 237 trillion Euros a year, is highly specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 55,562 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Medical lawsuits are out of control, coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, signs saying "No Poor People or Weirdoes" are common outside shops and cafés, and many feel that the government's ban on cars to combat reckless driving was "a tad excessive". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Weihbach's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Weihbach is ranked 173,493rd in the world and 230th in Wintreath for Most Conservative, scoring 36.17 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
