The Wayward Lightbrand of Westinor is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by advent with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.894 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 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Westinorian economy, worth 536 trillion Gold Bars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 185,313 Gold Bars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded, young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, the government is giving peace a chance, and sending sick politicians "Get Well Soon" cards is considered bribery. 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 209,715th in the world and 7,795th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -9.94 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
