The Oligarchical Matriarchy of Westerburg High School is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Heathers with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 3.853 billion Students are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Spirituality also on the agenda, while International Aid and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the cafeteria. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.5%.

The powerhouse a student economy, worth 280 trillion scrunchies a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 72,686 scrunchies, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

Soldiers have a preference for fire-and-forget payloads, government officials across Westerburg High School are being "encouraged" to adopt football jocks to set an example for the populace, endocrinology is a rapidly growing field of study, and a chain of pubs that cater solely to children has recently been unveiled. Crime is a problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Westerburg High School's national animal is the football jocks, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Westerburg High School is ranked 17,720th in the world and 1st in The Seventh Reich for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 116.55 on the Hayek Index.
