The Principality of West Pac is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 6.44 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.

Eight year-olds can be seen lighting up in public areas, citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets, the Cheetah is believed to be extinct, and people regularly disappear off the streets and all evidence of them is destroyed. 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 6th in Keglen and 111,285th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -21 on the Hayek Index.
