Westerly Winds

Population14.492 billion

CapitalChicago - The Windy City


The Gentle Breeze of Westerly Winds is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical, devout population of 14.492 billion Westerly Windsians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

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 958 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 66,155 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 176,075th in the world and 4th in Violet Irises for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -6.24 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
