The Into Nordic of West Sylvania is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Mark Luther with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.333 billion Westsylvanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yinzburgh. The average income tax rate is 99.8%.

The enormous but inefficient West Sylvanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,143 trillion Ennats a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 139,798 Ennats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", and the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments. Crime is totally unknown. West Sylvania's national animal is the Zebra Spider, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

West Sylvania is ranked 1,321st in the world and 528th in The North Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 58,883 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
