The Grand Republic of The United Republic of Westend is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The People's Parliament with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 11.505 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 Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Porto Libero. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Westendian economy, worth a remarkable 3,081 trillion Sovereigns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 267,826 Sovereigns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The main interest rates change daily based on the latest news story, political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, lending money has become a major liability, and blackface performers claim they are being deliberately ironic. Crime is totally unknown. The United Republic of Westend's national animal is the Dove, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is The Light Of Liberty.

The United Republic of Westend is ranked 1,331st in the world and 29th in the West Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 31,188.24 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
