The In a Union of Werfond is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Grantham Baskin with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 792 million Werfondians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order and Education are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Redwood Nyre. The average income tax rate is 62.3%.

The powerhouse Werfondian economy, worth 99.1 trillion Leaveses a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 125,106 Leaveses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Too many hyper-intelligent chefs can spoil the allegorical broth, birds and children's kites are regularly brought down by anti-aircraft fire, the nation has declared war on all passing comets, and the sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Werfond's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Werfond is ranked 212,648th in the world and 560th in First World Order for Nudest, with 7.25 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
