The Grand Empire of West Heisen is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Walther D Garamond with an iron fist, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.414 billion West Heisenians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aster. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 48.8%.

The frighteningly efficient West Heisenian economy, worth 558 trillion Heisenian Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 163,605 Heisenian Marks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 860,472 per year while the poor average 16,604, a ratio of 51.8 to 1.

The nation is famous for having one of the world's largest Golden Eagle hunting institutions, the government merely sends empty platitudes whenever natural disasters strike foreign nations, justice is available only to those who can afford its price tag, and citizens have an obligation to remain silent and anything they say may be used against them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. West Heisen's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

West Heisen is ranked 203,972nd in the world and 334th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Least Corrupt Governments, with 31.53 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
