The Scientific Empire of West Kompa Ru is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-working, democratic population of 34.614 billion West Kompa Ruans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.3%.

The thriving West Kompa Ruan economy, worth a remarkable 1,478 trillion Ru Dinars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 42,706 Ru Dinars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 123,681 per year while the poor average 11,685, a ratio of 10.6 to 1.

The government is avowedly atheist, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, the people elect the Supreme Court justices directly, and children are raised bilingual from an early age. Crime is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. West Kompa Ru's national animal is the Dreale Doe, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

West Kompa Ru is ranked 53,317th in the world and 8th in The Heartland for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 87 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
