The Republic of West1 is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 872 million West1ians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.
The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.9%.
The thriving West1ian economy, worth 60.9 trillion Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Information Technology, and Tourism. Average income is 69,819 Marks, with the richest citizens earning 8.2 times as much as the poorest.
Educators and parents alike are allowing children to view the internet again after violent videos were purged, signs saying "No Poor People or Weirdoes" are common outside shops and cafés, genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, and West1 has designated West1 City as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force. West1's national animal is the Penguin.
