The Grand Duchy of West Viejas is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Duchess Alia with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, ban on automobiles, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 1.253 billion West Viejans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of La Hoya. The average income tax rate is 75.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong West Viejasian economy, worth 96.6 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Trout Farming. Average income is 77,057 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, the nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, the government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap, and gift baskets often contain working nukes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. West Viejas's national animal is the Sea turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

West Viejas is ranked 214,258th in the world and 4,300th in Alliance of Supreme Powers for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -5.48 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
