The Not Kenneth Branagh of Western Fardelshufflestein is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 562 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 48.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Western Fardelshufflesteinian economy, worth 58.4 trillion schlubs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 103,898 schlubs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Billions of schlubs are spent to take high-quality photos of the Eurasian Brown Bear Nebula, 50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, there's never enough space in space, and the average cargo freighter spends more than half its service life undergoing safety inspections. Crime 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 86,905th in the world and 2,751st in the South Pacific for Most Average, scoring 39.47 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
