The Grand Duchy of Wessenberg is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Gro▀herzog Paul von Sachsen-Badenburg with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.697 billion Wessenbergians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Friedrichsruhe. The average income tax rate is 34.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wessenbergian economy, worth 211 trillion Guldens a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Gambling, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 124,737 Guldens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Respect is something that is typically forced rather than earned in Wessenberg, chickens frolic freely on swings and roundabouts in Friedrichsruhe's playgrounds, homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, and burial ceremonies have become as routinised as tax forms. Crime is almost non-existent. Wessenberg's national animal is the Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lutheran.

Wessenberg is ranked 9,484th in the world and 1st in Heiliges Remisches Reich for Most Cultured, scoring 112 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
