The Bureaucratic Parliament of Westfacto is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Warner Höltz with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 2.3 billion Westfactoans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Delfacto. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Westfactoan economy, worth 431 trillion Solucoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 187,710 Solucoins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 754,980 per year while the poor average 31,233, a ratio of 24.2 to 1.

Discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, nuclear physics is the most popular course at university, government policy is dictated by a major religion, and major corporations receive tax breaks for no apparent reason. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Westfacto's national animal is the Orange Buffalo, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Westfacto is ranked 51,864th in the world and 2,577th in The North Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 31,233.24 Standard Monetary Units.
