The Most Ancient and Noble House of Lancaster of Wessex is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Duke Lancaster with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 37.69 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 government prioritizes Education, with Environment and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Ancestral Estate Capital Region. The average income tax rate is 78.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lancaster of Wessexian economy, worth an astonishing 12,962 trillion Royal Crown Sterlings a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 343,935 Royal Crown Sterlings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Televangelists flaunt their expensive cars when they attend charity events, travelers are subject to extensive searches if beet stains are visible on their clothing, the Violetist community celebrates bombshells being dropped on Lancaster of Wessex, and a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts. 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 254th in the world and 1st in House of Lancaster of Wessex for Highest Economic Output, with 12,962 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
