The August Grand Duchy of Serene Grand Duchy of the West Pacific is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by HGDH Duchess Katrina von Arendelle with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, pith helmet sales, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 11.217 billion Westvolks 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, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elsabrooke. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Wester economy, worth a remarkable 3,333 trillion Grand Ducats a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 297,148 Grand Ducats, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.

Failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, casino tax breaks are even bigger than their jackpots, one-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, and newspapers cannot report anything about politicians without their explicit consent. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Serene Grand Duchy of the West Pacific's national animal is the wyvern, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Serene Grand Duchy of the West Pacific is ranked 159,201st in the world and 72nd in Right to Life for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -24.7 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
