The United Kingdom of Welter Simmons is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Amadeus Hamilton with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, public floggings, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.241 billion Welter Simms 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 Defense, Education, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.6%.

The all-consuming Welter Simmonsian economy, worth 244 trillion pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 109,090 pounds, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

Museums have more touchscreens on display than artifacts, half of the nation's import/export industry is run from a location known only as 'Dead Man's Cove', adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère, and human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Welter Simmons's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Welter Simmons is ranked 85,843rd in the world and 3,393rd in Balder for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 993.43 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
