The Ancient Kingdom of Westwind is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Westwind with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and national health service. The hard-working, democratic population of 31.958 billion Westwindians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The medium-sized, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alexandria. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 29.9%.

The all-consuming Westwindian economy, worth a remarkable 2,287 trillion Equiliants a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Pizza Delivery, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 71,584 Equiliants, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 290,244 per year while the poor average 11,752, a ratio of 24.7 to 1.

You need two tenors and a coloratura contralto to sing the national anthem properly, convicts released after being found "wrongfully imprisoned" are surprisingly chill about the whole thing, failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, and the sidewalk is used as an overtaking lane by city drivers. Crime is almost non-existent. Westwind's national animal is the Griffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Westwind is ranked 115,259th in the world and 4,320th in the West Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -4.47 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
