The Republic of West Swedania is a huge, safe nation, notable for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 763 million West Swedanians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Middangeard. The average income tax rate is 48.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse West Swedanian economy, worth 62.8 trillion Swedanian crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is 82,298 Swedanian crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Small businesses are gobbled up almost daily by corporate giants, strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, conspiracy theorists allege that the government is spying on them through their carbon monoxide detectors, and the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Middangeard Times is sold out. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. West Swedania's national animal is the tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

West Swedania is ranked 27,907th in the world and 963rd in The East Pacific for Most Secular, with 38.84 Atheism Rate.
