The Fourth Federal Republic of Welfresio is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Fokło Czvusz with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 5.305 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 84.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Welfresioan economy, worth 638 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 120,390 Renflard Crederes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

High-tech infantry rifles automatically reload when the soldier shoots outside the screen of their helmet HUD, grannies with arthritic hands work miserably on factory production lines, horns and hypocrisy are the newest exports of Welfresio, and graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation'. 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 22,065th in the world and 1,132nd in Osiris for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 14,061.86 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
