The Trade Union of The Western Reaches is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Hyperion Corporation with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 7.81 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 Osiris 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 1,724th in Osiris and 51,393rd in the world for Nudest, with 142 Cheeks per Square Mile.
