The Federation of Wysten is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Mat Cauthon with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 4.028 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 27.6%.

The all-consuming Wystenian economy, worth 380 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 94,579 Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 367,604 per year while the poor average 16,645, a ratio of 22.1 to 1.

Military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, tourists flock to see the giant stone carvings of Wysten's historical leaders at Mount Rushless, sneezing pedestrians are grabbed by alley-lurking doctors, and the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust. 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 41,158th in the world and 27th in Cobalt Network for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 1,311.27 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
