The Benevolent Dictatorship of The WestPacific is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Comrade Ozoi with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.281 billion zombies 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chocolate Hoard. The average income tax rate is 79.8%.

The zombie economy, worth 321 trillion Snarks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, Cheese Exports, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 60,917 Snarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government seizes all major gold finds, the government is seen to favor Catholics, Comrade Ozoi has been known to threaten dissenting citizens with a machine gun at press conferences, and Comrade Ozoi is the self-declared God of all The WestPacific. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The WestPacific's national animal is the Black Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of Snark.

The WestPacific is ranked 111,058th in the world and 272nd in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 55 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
