The Wym Wandering Wistfully of Wymondham is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Wym with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, rampant corporate plagiarism, and national health service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 10.909 billion Wymondhamians are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Old Wymondham. The average income tax rate is 70.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wymondhamian economy, worth a remarkable 1,621 trillion Scarabs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 148,641 Scarabs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Wym's Dreadnought-class tankbuster limousine is said to have more ammunition than the entire Brancalandian Army, the government is cracking down on subversive groups, pregnant hitchhikers with signs requesting rides to "competent care" are a common sight on Wymondhamian roads, and war criminals are given full state funerals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wymondham's national animal is the Cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Friendship.

Wymondham is ranked 15,768th in the world and 283rd in the West Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 8,443.9 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
