The Queendom of Wyare is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Lydia with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, national health service, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate population of 8.607 billion Wyareians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fleurette. The average income tax rate is 97.8%.

The large but stagnant Wyareian economy, worth 242 trillion Quns a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 28,211 Quns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Snooze factory is now prison lingo for rehabilitation center, traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, newspapers are celebrating Queen Lydia saving over a million cats from trees, and W-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wyare's national animal is the Snowy Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Religion.

Wyare is ranked 19,714th in the world and 851st in Balder for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 207.5 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
