The Expansive Dominion of The Occidental Peoples is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by William the Just Ruler of the Occidents with an iron fist, and notable for its flagrant waste-dumping, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.701 billion Occidents 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Babylon. The average income tax rate is 91.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Occidentalian economy, worth 646 trillion Solaris a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 174,712 Solaris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Many former slaves are finding out there is such a thing as a free lunch, annual Formula One races bring the capital to a screeching halt, there are no more heroes any more, and student exchange programs are in trouble as everyone wants to leave but no-one wants to come. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Occidental Peoples's national animal is the Miniature Schnauzer, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Occidental Peoples is ranked 7,197th in the world and 17th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 91.93 Effective Tax Rate.
