The Great Empire of Western Suijen is a colossal, devout nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The cynical population of 9.821 billion Western Suijenians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Education. The average income tax rate is 57%, and even higher for the wealthy. A small but healthy private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

A National Academy regulates grammar and usage, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, and reporters often lose their jobs over fact-checking errors. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Western Suijen's national animal is the suijen alligator, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its currency is the New Yuan.

Western Suijen is ranked 3rd in Republic City and 68,743rd in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 55 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
