The North of East of South of West-Flanders is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Ikke with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 37.214 billion West-Flandrians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of W-City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient West-Flandrian economy, worth a remarkable 7,063 trillion euros a year, is highly specialized and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 189,815 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

National parks have long lines of different gender-specific 'Porta-Pottys', nude art is becoming wildly popular, students cut up leftover euros during Arts and Crafts, and the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. West-Flanders's national animal is the lintworm, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is athe´smus.

West-Flanders is ranked 726th in the world and 4th in belgium for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 17,447.99 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
