The Federal Monarchy of West Atlantia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Jane I with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, strictly enforced bedtime, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 16.45 billion Galenites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Avallónë. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Galenic economy, worth a remarkable 4,103 trillion Galenic Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is an amazing 249,433 Galenic Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, the government-run newspapers insist that everything is fine, and the government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. West Atlantia's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

West Atlantia is ranked 33,737th in the world and 8th in New Septentrion for Most Influential, scoring 874 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
