Population760 million


The Republic of West47 is a huge, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service. The quiet, industrious population of 760 million West47ians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Spirituality are also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. The average income tax rate is 37.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient West47ian economy, worth 26.3 trillion florins a year, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 34,547 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. West47's national animal is the cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

West47 is ranked 185,319th in the world and 2,247th in Birb for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -3.74 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
