The Commonwealth of Wischen is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Kurtis Nickel with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, infamous sell-swords, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.787 billion Wischenians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Araie. The average income tax rate is 70.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Wischenian economy, worth 99.3 trillion Windels a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Basket Weaving, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 55,547 Windels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms, murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour, the nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events, and fruit pickers with degrees in Blob Fish psychology are a common sight. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wischen's national animal is the Blob Fish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Atheism.

Wischen is ranked 7,228th in the world and 393rd in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.72 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
