The United Republic States of Wentsworth is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by President Richard Carter with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, triple-decker prams, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 18.122 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 and Education are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canberra. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Wentsworthian economy, worth an astonishing 11,996 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 661,974 Austars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Official maps have to be revised on a weekly basis, the fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast, vats of anabolic steroids are being dumped into the ocean to make Wentsworthian mussels the biggest in New Western Empire, and libraries are bulldozed to make way for internet cafés. 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 313th in the world and 1st in New Western Empire for Highest Economic Output, with 11,996 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
