The Federation of West Longobardia is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, frequent executions, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 341 million West Longobardians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Windhelm. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 48.6%.

The frighteningly efficient West Longobardian economy, worth 31.3 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 91,803 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

Virtually all of the country's economic activity takes place in Windhelm, multilingual concierges man empty inner city apartment blocks, solving crossword puzzles requires fluency in at least five languages, and students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. West Longobardia's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

West Longobardia is ranked 56,695th in the world and 854th in 10000 Islands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 68.19 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
