The Democratic Federal Republic of Willitya is a huge, safe nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 685 million Willityans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Willitya City. The average income tax rate is 71.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Willityan economy, worth 82.8 trillion Willityan Credits a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 120,804 Willityan Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use Willitya City as a backdrop, and the new national anthem passes the Turing Test. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Willitya's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Willitya is ranked 18,022nd in the world and 975th in The North Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 65.22 Quips Per Hour.
