The Fifth Federal Republic of Welfresio is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Fokło Czvusz with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 5.698 billion Welfresioans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Viragsvet. The average income tax rate is 84.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Welfresioan economy, worth 682 trillion Renflard Crederes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 119,809 Renflard Crederes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's weary schoolchildren excel at sport but must count scores on their fingers, the banshee wail foretells skies of death, adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère, and the nation's school children are fluent in Klingon but lack basic mathematical skills. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Welfresio's national animal is the Black Panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Welfresio is ranked 24,103rd in the world and 1,273rd in Balder for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 96.85 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
