The Sovereign Kingdom of Westnesia is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic population of 18.349 billion Westnesians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bruw. The average income tax rate is 92.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Westnesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,473 trillion Bruwer Guildens a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 80,294 Bruwer Guildens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave, birth rates have hit an all-time low, and teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Westnesia's national animal is the Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
