The Kingdom of Wellsia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory gun ownership, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cheerful, devout population of 10.037 billion Wellsians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eddoras. The average income tax rate is 26.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wellsian economy, worth a remarkable 2,587 trillion scales a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 257,759 scales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Boats straying just metres away from the shore will raise the ire of the Coast Guard, mathematicians are hated by children across the country, the Horse is a protected species, and the nation's once beautiful countryside has turned brown as farmers spray potent pesticides. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wellsia's national animal is the Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Saculeum.

Wellsia is ranked 56,129th in the world and 92nd in The Western Isles for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 2.13 Bank.
