The Republic of West40 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its public floggings, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.457 billion West40ians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 40.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The West40ian economy, worth 98.0 trillion deniers a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 39,878 deniers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Fashion magazine covers finally display realistic body images following photo-manipulation becoming illegal, power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, and private businesses are paving paradises to put up parking lots. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. West40's national animal is the crocodile, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

West40 is ranked 57,063rd in the world and 361st in Artificial Solar System for Most Secular, with 27.76 Atheism Rate.
