The Democratic Republic of Werglum is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Ann ODam with an even hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, state-planned economy, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.252 billion Werglumians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Syrenead. The average income tax rate is 90.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Werglumian economy, worth 135 trillion Dracips a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 108,514 Dracips, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, the song 'They Got an Awful Lot of Coffee in Werglum' is a smash hit, RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, and the nation's leader is normally just referred to as "snuggle-wuggle-huggy-bear". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Werglum's national animal is the Airedale Terrier, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is None.

Werglum is ranked 56,651st in the world and 1,277th in The East Pacific for Most Stationary, with 219.74463714112 Days.
