The United States of Wespuchius is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by President William Josephus Shepard with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 8.651 billion Wespuchians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Metropolis DL. The average income tax rate is 71.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wespucheese economy, worth a remarkable 1,058 trillion platinas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 122,389 platinas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

People often feel unbalanced by their daily commute, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, foreign workers are flooding in as platinas flood out, and the army consists of only generals and grunts. Crime is totally unknown. Wespuchius's national animal is the golden falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholic Christianity.

Wespuchius is ranked 283,769th in the world and 600th in The League for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 22.35 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
