The Queendom of Westphalie is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, anti-smoking policies, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 823 million Queen's obedient subjects are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Troutorya. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 44.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Westphaliean economy, worth 108 trillion кронs a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 132,251 кронs, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 807,262 per year while the poor average 9,562, a ratio of 84.4 to 1.

The masses are surrendering their civil liberties without complaint for the sake of shopping convenience, nephews and nieces of the monarch resort to begging from relatives in palace halls, children who believe in the tooth fairy are frequently shipped off to Bigtopia, and drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Westphalie's national animal is the trout, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Westphalie is ranked 23,499th in the world and 382nd in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 84.42 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
