The United Kingdom of Weihbach is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Winston V with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, ban on automobiles, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 7.83 billion Weihbachians 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 enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Felses. The average income tax rate is 76.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Weihbachian economy, worth 443 trillion Euros a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 56,631 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Medical lawsuits are out of control, coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, signs saying "No Poor People or Weirdoes" are common outside shops and cafés, and many feel that the government's ban on cars to combat reckless driving was "a tad excessive". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Weihbach's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Weihbach is ranked 41,435th in the world and 133rd in Wintreath for Most Cultured, scoring 73 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
