The United Kingdom of Wellsia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 8.661 billion Wellsians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ealdwic. The average income tax rate is 3.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wellsian economy, worth a remarkable 2,026 trillion scales a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 233,953 scales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The government raises tariffs on a weekly basis, disaster relief budgets are growing like wildfire, grannies get pulled over for knitting pullovers while driving, and late night adverts for breast milk co-ops regularly win pornography industry awards. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wellsia's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Saculeum.

Wellsia is ranked 14,152nd in the world and 14th in The Western Isles for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 7,428.07 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
