The Republic of West10 is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.449 billion West10ians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 56.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient West10ian economy, worth 43.5 trillion pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Arms Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 30,055 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
The new iVote app allows representatives to vote on legislation by launching ill-tempered birds and matching candies, there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, the Department of Health is snowed under by requests for crisper ciabatta and tenderer tagliatelle, and strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. West10's national animal is the unicorn.
