The North of East of South of West-Flanders is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Ikke with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 38.877 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, liberal, 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 7,299 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 187,766 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 well-funded 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 238,281st in the world and 181st in belgium for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -17.59 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
