The Principality of Welzat is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its compulsory military service and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 937 million Welzatians 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 large, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Armitage. The average income tax rate is 45.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Welzatian economy, worth 33.9 trillion Welzat Standards a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 36,218 Welzat Standards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

A government program is underway to revitalize Welzat's beaches and Welzat has designated Armitage as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Welzat's national animal is the Welzat Giant Scorpion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Welzat is ranked 118,686th in the world and 5,041st in The East Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 963.05 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
