The United Queendom of New Westfields is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its state-planned economy, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 562 million Westfielders 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.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Braddock. The average income tax rate is 42.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Westfield economy, worth 48.6 trillion centerbills a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 86,488 centerbills, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dozens of viewers go online to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375, dubiously qualified East Lebatuckese doctors prescribe ice baths as a treatment for pneumonia, New Westfield watches are often the only thing to survive a disaster intact, and people can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Westfields's national animal is the eastern bluebird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

New Westfields is ranked 14,934th in the world and 4th in Dexter for Most Inclusive, scoring 156.93 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
