The Empire of Wei is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Gao Wei with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, zero percent divorce rate, and aversion to nipples. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.829 billion Weians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tianjing. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Weian economy, worth a remarkable 1,688 trillion Yuan a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 289,657 Yuan, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, and advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wei's national animal is the Blue Pheasant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wei is ranked 121,746th in the world and 4,265th in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 725.42 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
