The Dominion of Wessara is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Tirell Marksal with an even hand, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, compulsory military service, and frequent executions. The compassionate, cheerful population of 6.405 billion Wessarans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Panther Hill. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Wessaran economy, worth a remarkable 1,530 trillion kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 239,001 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Companies struggle to cover for the hordes of employees on parental leave, arriving late for dinner is considered the height of selfishness, high-tech infantry rifles automatically reload when the soldier shoots outside the screen of their helmet HUD, and the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wessara's national animal is the panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wessara is ranked 3,221st in the world and 82nd in The East Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 20,221.33 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
