The Commonwealth of Westerlies is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Council of Commons with a fair hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, compulsory gun ownership, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.472 billion Westerlians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Environment, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maclean. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Westerlian economy, worth 760 trillion Commonmarks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 170,161 Commonmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Council of Commons panders to nontraditional families, there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation, maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords, and proper policy proposals prerequire professional peer-reviewed papers. Crime is totally unknown. Westerlies's national animal is the Western Black Squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is None.

Westerlies is ranked 39,845th in the world and 61st in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Extreme, scoring 29.26 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
