The Kenneth Branagh Won an Oscar of Western Fardelshufflestein is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Alastair Kehrer IV tHe bELoVeD with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.474 billion 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 large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Hamletberg. The average income tax rate is 73.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Western Fardelshufflesteinian economy, worth 399 trillion schlubs a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 89,344 schlubs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, there's some really clean windows in Western Fardelshufflesteinian houses, sex education has become an intricate maze of stick figures and complex metaphors, and politicians are often seen attending regional history classes at primary schools within their constituencies. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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, and its national religion is Kenneth Branaghism.

Western Fardelshufflestein is ranked 22,278th in the world and 687th in the South Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 58.59 quips per hour.
