The Republic of West60 is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 711 million West60ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 37.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient West60ian economy, worth 20.7 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 29,079 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
Crime is well under control, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. West60's national animal is the horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
