The Trade Union of The Western Reaches is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by the Hyperion Corporation with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 7.687 billion The Western Reachesians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Commerce, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sweetwater City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing industries.

Insomnia is slowly turning everyone insane, only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations, The Western Reaches-made cars tend to catch fire in people's driveways, and the nation leads Balder in per capita stalking. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is pervasive, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. The Western Reaches's national animal is the Buffalo, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Dollar.

The Western Reaches is ranked 3,046th in Balder and 110,639th in the world for Best Weather, with -402 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
