The Federation of Wysten is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Mat Cauthon with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 6.558 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, although Industry, Healthcare, and Education are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Drenden. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 27.2%.

The all-consuming Wystenian economy, worth 622 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. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 94,950 Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 369,044 per year while the poor average 16,710, 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 79,709th in the world and 2,909th in Balder for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,755.49 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
