The Republic of West50 is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 732 million West50ians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 22.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient West50ian economy, worth 30.1 trillion florins a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Pizza Delivery, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 41,179 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.
Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. West50's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
