The Battle-Ready Republic of Wersh is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Hallon with an even hand, and notable for its digital currency, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 4.734 billion Wershians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Corlabelm. The average income tax rate is 71.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wershian economy, worth 860 trillion Houers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 181,697 Houers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, and gossip magazines have pictures of President Hallon sunbathing on the beach with political rivals. Crime is totally unknown. Wersh's national animal is the Sun Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wersh is ranked 185,935th in the world and 8,260th in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 89.25 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
