The United Kingdom of Western Standle Dorse is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Andrew with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 2.645 billion Western Standle Dorseans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 70.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Western Standle Dorsean economy, worth 697 trillion Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 263,536 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Laborers are building walls and making Wezeltonia pay for it, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, and polygamy is legal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Western Standle Dorse's national animal is the lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Western Standle Dorse is ranked 15,151st in the world and 778th in Osiris for Smartest Citizens, with 73.82 quips per hour.
