The People's Republic of Norwest Islands is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chairman Mark Huerta with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. Its hard-nosed, intelligent population of 3.237 billion 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Royal. The average income tax rate is 94%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Gambling industry.

Innocent defendants often plea guilty for fear of receiving a much harsher sentence before jury, Norwest Islands's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, and the Polydactyl House Cat is a protected species. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Norwest Islands's national animal is the Polydactyl House Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Deism, and its currency is the Republic Peso.

Norwest Islands is ranked 5th in Caribbean and 5,057th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 21 Whatever.
