The Existential Quandry of Weller Centennial is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Philosopher In Chief with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 29.292 billion Weller Centenarians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cork. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Weller Centennialian economy, worth an astonishing 10,192 trillion Doughnuts a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Retail, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an amazing 347,958 Doughnuts, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,995,292 per year while the poor average 29,236, a ratio of 68.2 to 1.

The nation's once beautiful countryside has turned brown as farmers spray potent pesticides, wait staff claim to like it when odorous customers flirt with them, high school career advisors advise belligerent loners to consider vigilantism, and fistfighting vigilantes tend to suffer a lot of gunshot wounds. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Weller Centennial's national animal is the Giant Sloth, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Weller Centennial is ranked 1,042nd in the world and 2nd in Galts Gulch for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 881.19 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
