The August Grand Duchy of Serene Grand Duchy of the West Pacific is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by HGDH Duchess Katrina von Arendelle with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, daily referendums, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 11.953 billion Westvolks have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elsabrooke. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 36.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Wester economy, worth a remarkable 3,626 trillion Grand Ducats a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 303,415 Grand Ducats, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 935,413 per year while the poor average 75,979, a ratio of 12.3 to 1.

Older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, treaties are taken to be mere rules of thumb, the people elect the Supreme Court justices directly, and obstetricians are not allowed to publish ultrasound pictures of fetuses in medical journals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Serene Grand Duchy of the West Pacific's national animal is the wyvern, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Serene Grand Duchy of the West Pacific is ranked 730th in the world and 2nd in Right to Life for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 13,761.67 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
