The Allied States of West United States is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its digital currency, ubiquitous missile silos, and public floggings. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.486 billion West United Statesians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 46.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped West United Statesian economy, worth 53.7 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 36,135 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm, the comic book series 'Leader and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly, and animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. West United States's national animal is the Brown Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

West United States is ranked 82,169th in the world and 2,992nd in Balder for Safest, scoring 81.69 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
