The Federated States of Welte is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, digital currency, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.602 billion Weltheans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hauptstadt. The average income tax rate is 68.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Welthean economy, worth 301 trillion essens a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 115,964 essens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Newspapers are celebrating Leader saving over a million cats from trees, the 'sing-a-long with Leader' album is a popular souvenir, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Hauptstadt, and families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Welte's national animal is the wintermorgon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Welte is ranked 10,339th in the world and 662nd in Balder for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 1,691.51 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
