The Democratic Republic of Wolveristan is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 445 million Wolveristanians 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 large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 68.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Wolveristanian economy, worth 33.9 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Retail, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 76,197 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Parties that are too noisy are broken up to prevent disturbing wildlife, sales of trenchcoats are on the rise, dozens of viewers go online to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375, and social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wolveristan's national animal is the Wolverine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wolveristan is ranked 74,804th in the world and 141st in The League for Most Extreme, scoring 26.58 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
