The Constitutional Monarchy of Western Fardelshufflestein is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 389 million Western Fardelshufflesteinians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Hamletberg. The average income tax rate is 43.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Western Fardelshufflesteinian economy, worth 38.3 trillion schlubs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 98,424 schlubs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Every workday begins with group therapy, Jennifer Government is a bestseller, advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, and Western Fardelshufflesteinian husbands are dead good at fathering kids. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Western Fardelshufflestein's national animal is the Eurasian brown bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Western Fardelshufflestein is ranked 27,547th in the world and 857th in the South Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 75.7 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
