The Republic of Wysrod is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Atheros Graymalkin with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 20.759 billion Wysrodians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wysrod City at Durskerl Bay. The average income tax rate is 61.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wysrodian economy, worth an astonishing 10,537 trillion Wysrodian Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Retail, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is a breathtaking 507,589 Wysrodian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Many marriages go virtually unconsummated, the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song, and refugees from other nations are flocking to Wysrod's border. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Wysrod's national animal is the Draugluin Direwolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Wysrod is ranked 292,745th in the world and 853rd in 10000 Islands for Best Weather, with -1225 meters of sunlight.
