The Holy Empire of West Bassonien is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Larry Moon with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.769 billion West Bassonienians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lasse Holm City. The average income tax rate is 17.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient West Bassonienian economy, worth 275 trillion cannelonis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 155,501 cannelonis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is known abroad mostly for its Parliamentary antics, the government loves seeing the little people fight, a five-year-old and a convicted terrorist can sit alongside one another in jury service, and cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. West Bassonien's national animal is the poison spider, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is La bussola Pompeij.

West Bassonien is ranked 187,047th in the world and 1,753rd in 10000 Islands for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 45.24 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
