The Free Syndicates of Wileyshire is a colossal, socially progressive nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.132 billion Wileans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leigh. The average income tax rate is 92.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Wileyshirean economy, worth 905 trillion Labor Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 126,956 Labor Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Organ donation is compulsory, childish pranks are no laughing matter, the government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy', and Brancalandian Brie isn't available anywhere in Wileyshire. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wileyshire's national animal is the Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wileyshire is ranked 72,875th in the world and 263rd in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.52 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
