The Anointed Ascendancy of Weylara is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Ptaros Kel'lara and Gaheris Almarys with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 25.551 billion Weylarans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nleii. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Weylaran economy, worth a remarkable 5,688 trillion jireis a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 222,618 jireis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia, businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections, the latest political memes depict Ptaros Kel'lara and Gaheris Almarys as an overly-choreographed robot, and gossip magazines are more interested in astrological stars than celebrity ones. Crime is totally unknown. Weylara's national animal is the vuwiri, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Great Anticipation.

Weylara is ranked 2,823rd in the world and 1st in Angolis for Largest Black Market, with 950 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
