The Autocratic Holdings of Westenhald is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Aldrikhayiss Foreign-Born with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, compulsory military service, and compulsory vegetarianism. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.792 billion Westenhaldidaliv are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Uylivirmin Hold. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Westenhaldidal economy, worth a remarkable 1,128 trillion Uvigelds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 404,200 Uvigelds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government officials who do an offal job get smoked, people can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler', soldiers are equipped with multi-million Uvigeld battlesuits, and the "swords to plowshares" policy has created a generation of farmers that can kill a yak from 200 yards away. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Westenhald's national animal is the Crocodile, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Veltirissychianism.

Westenhald is ranked 259,039th in the world and 12,061st in the South Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.13 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
