The Dominion of The Exarchate of the West is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Julius Barca with an iron fist, and notable for its aversion to nipples, avant-garde cinema, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.476 billion Exarchians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Palladia. The average income tax rate is 25.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Exarchate of the Westian economy, worth 201 trillion soliduses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 136,690 soliduses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

The new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", genetic researchers have been expelled, the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, and parachutes are considered optional with the newest line of jet fighters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Exarchate of the West's national animal is the golden eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

The Exarchate of the West is ranked 154,541st in the world and 42nd in Roman Byzantine Union for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 45.24 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
