The Holy Empire of Wochaystein is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Hannes II Rochus with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic, devout population of 2.574 billion Wochaysteiners enjoy great social freedoms and frequent elections, where the majority of the populace regularly votes to increase its benefits at the expense of various hapless minorities.

The large, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zuidren. The average income tax rate is 52.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Wochaysteiner economy, worth 62.7 trillion golds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Trout Farming. Average income is 24,376 golds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Wochaystein has designated Zuidren as its capital city, Hannes II Rochus has just been declared ruler of Wochaystein in an international press conference, Christianity has been named as Wochaystein's national religion, and forty-year-old men are asked for their ID before watching the latest pony cartoon movies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wochaystein's national animal is the shrew and its national religion is Christianity.

Wochaystein is ranked 21,227th in the world and 1st in Diarcesia for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 76.18 Workforce Participation Rate.
