The Principality of West Pac is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 6.643 billion West Pacians 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, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as the Environment and Social Welfare receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of West Pac City. The average income tax rate is 99%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Uranium Mining industry.

Aging citizens are celebrating the end of the 'Early Bird War', only fully-fledged members of MENSA are allowed to vote, the state has declared war on the environment and environmentalists by association, and tombstones are ten feet high to accommodate the names of inhabitants. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. West Pac's national animal is the Cheetah, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the non-existant Gorilla.

West Pac is ranked 3rd in Keglen and 8,089th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 206 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
