The World-Weary Nomadic Puppets of Wayfarer West is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Axis with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 4.222 billion Wayfarer Westians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Redemption. The average income tax rate is 69.5%.

The large but inefficient Wayfarer Westian economy, worth 197 trillion bags of beans a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 46,700 bags of beans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

No-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium, new vat-grown soldiers are as replaceable as bullets, it ain't easy to be green enough to be imported into Wayfarer West, and where there's a will there is usually a password manager. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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, and its national religion is Star Dance.

Wayfarer West is ranked 35,483rd in the world and 1,945th in Osiris for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 3,512.51 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
