The Commonwealth of West-Pacific States is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Deng Buk-jae Matsumoto with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and smutty television. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 4.528 billion West-Pacific citizens are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shin Fukuoka. The average income tax rate is 90.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient West-Pacifician economy, worth 931 trillion AMUS a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 205,811 AMUS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School plays were recently banned due to concerns of child endangerment, Deng Buk-jae Matsumoto has been known to make speeches in fishing waders, it is typical to be greeted by a string of curse words in West-Pacifician restaurants, and customs officers pretend not to hear shouts of "HELP LET ME OUT!" emerging from diplomatic bags. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. West-Pacific States's national animal is the Crested Ibis, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

West-Pacific States is ranked 207,525th in the world and 7,190th in the South Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 90.69 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
