The Federation of Wysten is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Mat Cauthon with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 8.519 billion Wystenians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Healthcare, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Drenden. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 28.0%.

The all-consuming Wystenian economy, worth 821 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 96,473 Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 374,147 per year while the poor average 17,038, a ratio of 22.0 to 1.

Male tourists tend to be fearful of Wysten's deadly femme fatales, married couples must call each other "darling" or risk a fine, debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace, and soldiers are equipped with multi-million Dollars battlesuits. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Wysten's national animal is the horse, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Wysten is ranked 57,128th in the world and 1,869th in Lazarus for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 2,888.81 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
