The Federation of West Chernobylaine is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 914 million Cherniks are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Spirituality are also considered important, while International Aid and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Metro Exodansk. The average income tax rate is 4.7%.

The very strong West Chernobylainean economy, worth 82.8 trillion Federalist Chernotes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 90,556 Federalist Chernotes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming, there's more vermin than ever on the metro, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, and East Lebatuckese luxury goods are plundered by the working class of West Chernobylaine. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. West Chernobylaine's national animal is the Mutated Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

West Chernobylaine is ranked 219,175th in the world and 4th in Chernik Region for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 30.85 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
