The Wayward Lightbrand of Westinor is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by advent with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, digital currency, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.162 billion Westinorians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ailarvale. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Westinorian economy, worth a remarkable 1,102 trillion Gold Bars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 213,645 Gold Bars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mothers are routinely abandoning their children in the name of women's rights, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, an endless multinational bureaucracy connects the Red Bloc, and the government is constantly producing new maps to accommodate the continual renaming of cities. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Westinor's national animal is the Pengu🐧, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Westinor is ranked 248,057th in the world and 10,304th in The North Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
