The Duchy of Wolemoer is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Charles XII with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 4.214 billion Wolemoerians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Law & Order, and Healthcare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cerchester. The average income tax rate is 74.4%.

The Wolemoerian economy, worth 185 trillion Carolean Pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 43,929 Carolean Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Waste is frequently shipped to other countries, the acceptance of acupuncture and other alternative therapies has needled the scientific community, the dish 'poisson avec poison' is only available on the black market, and sailors spend their shore leave helping old ladies cross the street. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wolemoer's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Christianity.

Wolemoer is ranked 54,741st in the world and 1,639th in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 62.26 on the Human Development Index.
