The Qualified Provinces of Western Zweiback is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Buck LeChat with an iron fist, and notable for its hatred of cheese. Its compassionate, cynical population of 4.951 billion are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Equality, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Yam. The average income tax rate is 99%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

The government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, the government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service, the government is buying children's books by the thousands, and citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages. Crime is totally unknown. Western Zweiback's national animal is the Zweibath Whooping Llama, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Harpo Marxism, and its currency is the Yambuck.

Western Zweiback is ranked 3,776th in Lazarus and 121,887th in the world for Most Avoided, scoring -1,860.25 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
