The Most Ancient and Noble House of Lancaster of Wessex is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Duke Lancaster with a fair hand, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, anti-smoking policies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 36.515 billion Lancastrians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Industry, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Ancestral Estate Capital Region. The average income tax rate is 79.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lancaster of Wessexian economy, worth an astonishing 12,590 trillion Royal Crown Sterlings a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 344,793 Royal Crown Sterlings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

No one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, surprising numbers of poor people are protesting against taxing the rich, a suspicious number of John Smiths are known to donate to Lancaster of Wessexian politicians, and the recital of citations that follows any political speech can be longer than the speech itself. Crime is totally unknown. Lancaster of Wessex's national animal is the peregrine falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is ceremonially Wessex Anglicanism.

Lancaster of Wessex is ranked 6,360th in the world and 2nd in House of Lancaster of Wessex for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 14,343.85 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
