The Free Syndicates of Wileyshire is a massive, genial nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, rampant corporate plagiarism, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.682 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leigh. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Wileyshirean economy, worth 546 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 quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 116,774 Labor Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Conscripts often volunteer for a second tour of duty so they can get a ticket to next year's Army Revue, internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens, counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, and farting etiquette is taught in schools. 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 162,334th in the world and 296th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -214.65 on the Hayek Index.
