The World-Weary Nomadic Puppets of Wayfarer West is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its absence of drug laws, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic, devout population of 3.027 billion Wayfarer Westians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 71.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Wayfarer Westian economy, worth 63.3 trillion bags of beans a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 20,909 bags of beans, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Meat-eating is frowned upon, euthanasia is illegal, it is illegal to make racist remarks in public, and military spending is on the increase. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wayfarer West's national animal is the migrating salmon, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Wayfarer West is ranked 99,898th in the world and 11th in Ms Professor X for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
