The Federal Republic of West-Berlin-Area is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Benjamin Disraeli with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, pith helmet sales, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.444 billion West Berliners enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The relatively small, liberal, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of West Berlin. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 39.0%.

The frighteningly efficient West Berlin economy, worth 262 trillion Tatendan Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 181,584 Tatendan Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 863,604 per year while the poor average 22,484, a ratio of 38.4 to 1.

Social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, the most popular WhoTube videos are ones featuring parodies of iconic songs, and nuclear submarines have been deployed to protect the nation's banana supply. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. West-Berlin-Area's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

West-Berlin-Area is ranked 12,076th in the world and 5th in Tatenda for Most Cultured, scoring 104 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
