The United Cities of Western Borderlands is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Cerinivan Klomin with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.885 billion borderlandians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Defence, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Golden Bridge. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Uranium Mining, Retail, and Information Technology industries.

Western Borderlands is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, the government is pursuing a new programme aimed at promoting cultural sophistication, organ donation is compulsory, and corporate lobbying has been outlawed. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a serious problem. Western Borderlands's national animal is the Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Loni.

Western Borderlands is ranked 159th in Atlantian Oceania and 105,104th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring -1 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
