The Kounsilate Monarky of Welba is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 605 million Welbans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Meslonika. The average income tax rate is 43.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Welban economy, worth 52.9 trillion Welban dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 87,471 Welban dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreigners must sell an arm and a leg to afford surgery in Welba, antique comic book collectors are disappointed to hear that their treasures are worth exactly as little as their mothers said they were, in government offices a hidden killer takes the lives of ministers and civil servants, and pet owners exercise their Sivitorian Wolves at a snail's pace or risk prosecution. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Welba's national animal is the Sivitorian Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Welba is ranked 87,517th in the world and 916th in 10000 Islands for Safest, scoring 86.04 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
