The Kingdom of Wellsia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, cheerful, devout population of 10.319 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 Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eddoras. The average income tax rate is 32.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Wellsian economy, worth a remarkable 2,709 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 262,571 scales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Pregnant hitchhikers with signs requesting rides to "competent care" are a common sight on Wellsian roads, heretic deviants are free to practice their deviance outside of Wellsia, drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, and the studies of art and philosophy are banned. 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 11,767th in the world and 9th in The Western Isles for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 8,624.42 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
