The Republic of Westmonkwick is a huge, pleasant nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 768 million Westmonkwickians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.
The relatively small government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thorny Islet. The average income tax rate is 10.0%.
The strong Westmonkwickian economy, worth 44.1 trillion Westmonkwick shillings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Soda Sales. Average income is 57,468 Westmonkwick shillings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.
Discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, museums have more touchscreens on display than artifacts, Westmonkwick has designated Thorny Islet as its capital city, and most ambassadors from Westmonkwick retire only a few years after being appointed.
