The Battle-Ready Republic of Wersh is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Hallon with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 4.739 billion Wershians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Corlabelm. The average income tax rate is 71.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wershian economy, worth 861 trillion Houers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 181,697 Houers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, and gossip magazines have pictures of President Hallon sunbathing on the beach with political rivals. Crime is totally unknown. Wersh's national animal is the Sun Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wersh is ranked 89,201st in the world and 3,646th in The East Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,338.97 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
