The Capitalistic Cities of Western Borderlands is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Bryin Alcado II with an even hand, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 1.959 billion enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The enormous, pro-business 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 13%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail industries.

Citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, and the Hanging Gardens account for half of Golden Bridge's water use. 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 611th in 10000 Islands and 57,698th in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 23 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
