The Grand Empire of West Heisen is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Walther D Garamond with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete lack of prisons, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.585 billion West Heisenians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aster. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 49.2%.

The frighteningly efficient West Heisenian economy, worth 588 trillion Heisenian Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 164,190 Heisenian Marks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 863,551 per year while the poor average 16,664, a ratio of 51.8 to 1.

The nation is famous for having one of the world's largest Golden Eagle hunting institutions, the government merely sends empty platitudes whenever natural disasters strike foreign nations, justice is available only to those who can afford its price tag, and citizens have an obligation to remain silent and anything they say may be used against them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. West Heisen's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

West Heisen is ranked 139,977th in the world and 141st in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Average, scoring 32.06 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
