The Socialist Paradise of WyEast is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Maximus Decimus Meridius with an even hand, and notable for its parental licensing program, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.366 billion WyEasters are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Betelgeuse 5. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient WyEastian economy, worth 844 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 193,511 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Posters on 'WyEastian Values' advise against being proud of WyEast, WyEastian husbands are dead good at fathering kids, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and cremation is compulsory for the deceased. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. WyEast's national animal is the Grizzly, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Tao of Jesus.

WyEast is ranked 24,205th in the world and 890th in the West Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 4,570.56 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
