The Awesome People of Mr West is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its absence of drug laws, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 13.177 billion Mr Westians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 51.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The large but underdeveloped Mr Westian economy, worth 355 trillion Restanovas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 26,995 Restanovas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Voting is voluntary. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mr West's national animal is the Walrus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
