The One-Eyed Ghoul of Writinglegend is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Gleg with an iron fist, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 15.462 billion Writinglegends 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Writinglegend City. The average income tax rate is 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Writinglegendian economy, worth a remarkable 2,140 trillion Euros a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 138,458 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign leaders who don't applaud President Gleg's speeches are regarded as enemies of Writinglegend, women don't report crimes to the emergency services for fear of being arrested, several inches are being added to first class seating, and economists speak of trusting in the Tao of Free Market Capitalism. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Writinglegend's national animal is the Turtle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Whovianism.

Writinglegend is ranked 141,610th in the world and 887th in Europeia for Safest, scoring 62.5 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
