The United Kingdom of Wellsia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 8.649 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, well-organized 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 3.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wellsian economy, worth a remarkable 2,024 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 reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 234,020 scales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more, billions are being spent on a new island airport, King often plays real life games of Tower Defense against hordes of angry villagers, and five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes. 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 10,371st in the world and 11th in The Western Isles for Most Stationary, with 1,444.01617305128 Days.
