The Khinana Domination of Wellsia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by king with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, zero percent divorce rate, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 13.532 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 government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hadast. The average income tax rate is 3.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wellsian economy, worth a remarkable 3,596 trillion shekels 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 265,751 shekels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

New pilots are regularly reminded that they are more expendable than their planes, Members of Parliament are often found living in cardboard boxes, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, and politicians always seem reluctant to publish their tax returns. 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 Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Saculeum.

Wellsia is ranked 5,605th in the world and 9th in The Western Isles for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 7,200.28 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
