The Allied States of Western Continental Divide is a huge, safe nation, ruled by First Leader Miles McBath with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, otherworldly petting zoo, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 949 million Westerners are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The medium-sized, liberal, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Los Angeles. The average income tax rate is 74.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Western economy, worth 115 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 122,137 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Lines of trenches demarcate the nation's borders, First Leader Miles McBath has been known to make speeches in fishing waders, motivational posters send motorists positive vibes in high-risk areas, and frat-house partying has become the national pastime. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Western Continental Divide's national animal is the Grizzly Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Western Continental Divide is ranked 49,700th in the world and 299th in Forest for Most Income Equality, scoring 48.09 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
