The Commonwealth of Gwireth is a huge, genial nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 276 million Gwirethians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 66.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Gwirethian economy, worth 18.3 trillion wirths a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 66,449 wirths, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Whenever pilots have to bail out the government bails out their company, it is rumoured that Leader uses a magic 8-ball to make policy decisions, copies of the constitution are used as toilet paper, and devotion to God is only skin-deep. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gwireth's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gwireth is ranked 21,065th in the world and 1st in Aesthand for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.06 Years.
