Westerly Winds

Population13.352 billion

CapitalChicago - The Windy City


The Gentle Breeze of Westerly Winds is a gargantuan, orderly nation, notable for its smutty television, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The cynical, devout population of 13.352 billion Westerly Windsians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chicago - The Windy City. The average income tax rate is 62.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Westerly Windsian economy, worth 883 trillion Gusts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 66,153 Gusts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Visitors to Westerly Winds are microchipped and must be escorted by a Westerly Windsian soldier - even to the bathroom, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, the tax agency is feared more than serial killers and terrorists, and the nightly news reports prosaically on the government blindly throwing money at despotic kidnappers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Westerly Winds's national animal is the Tornado, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Westerly Winds is ranked 20,065th in the world and 1st in Violet Irises for Highest Economic Output, with 883 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
