The Dominion of Wohlheim is a very large, orderly nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy and irreverence towards religion. The cynical population of 186 million Wohlheimers are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 27.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Wohlheimer economy, worth 9.34 trillion thalers 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 Trout Farming, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 50,235 thalers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Leader's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies, political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads, the government confiscates candy from babies for 'the greater good' of the nation, and fat-shaming is now public policy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Wohlheim's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Wohlheim is ranked 141,623rd in the world and 12th in Versilian Hegemony for Most Pro-Market, scoring -66.75 on the Rand Index.
