The Dominion of Wolventoft is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its avant-garde cinema, fear of technology, and frequent executions. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.408 billion Wolventoftians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Espantro. The average income tax rate is 52.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Wolventoftian economy, worth 96.0 trillion Toofs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 39,849 Toofs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A sledgehammer and a spray can are seen as the default tools of political debate, getting an autograph has become harder than ever, ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products, and diminutive Wolventoftian generals are feared for their aggressiveness. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wolventoft's national animal is the Meerkat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wolventoft is ranked 84,890th in the world and 152nd in Thaecia for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,862.71 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
