The United Republic States of Wentsworth is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by President Richard Carter with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 14.316 billion Wentsworthians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canberra. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Wentsworthian economy, worth a remarkable 8,454 trillion Austars a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is a breathtaking 590,580 Austars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

The bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Canberra, shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, children raised in multi-faith households claim the other deity would let them stay up later, and confused-looking pigeons slide gently off frictionless window ledges. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Wentsworth's national animal is the Eaglehawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Wentsworth is ranked 20,395th in the world and 48th in New Western Atlantic for Most Developed, scoring 74.86 on the Human Development Index.
