The Mad Investigators of The United Republic of Westend is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by HP lovecraft with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.881 billion westendians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Porto Libero. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient westendian economy, worth a remarkable 1,881 trillion Sedativeses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 238,799 Sedativeses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, third world countries are rich in "I Love Porto Libero" t-shirts, the westendian Babysitters Club has proven to be a huge relief to stressed-out parents across the nation, and autocrats are persona non grata. Crime is totally unknown. The United Republic of Westend's national animal is the Dark young, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Truth.

The United Republic of Westend is ranked 63,813th in the world and 2,829th in the West Pacific for Most Devout, with 164.9 Prayers Per Hour.
