The United Kingdom of Wellsia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King with an iron fist, and remarkable for its aversion to nipples, daily referendums, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 9.11 billion Wellsians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ealdwic. The average income tax rate is 5.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Wellsian economy, worth a remarkable 2,239 trillion scales a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 245,786 scales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Terrorist videos start by thanking their sponsors, politicians sweat as journalists scour internet archives for any mention of them, artificial intelligences seeking exciting work are overcome with ennui, and the moral worth of national allies is judged by their GDP. 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 Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Saculeum.

Wellsia is ranked 14,480th in the world and 52nd in The Western Isles for Most Influential, scoring 3,040 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
