The Into Nordic of West Sylvania is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Mark Luther with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 17.218 billion Westsylvanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yinzburgh. The income tax rate is 100.0%.

The enormous but inefficient West Sylvanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,487 trillion Ennats a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 144,481 Ennats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Artists are pillars of society, West Sylvania is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, the sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans, and it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma. Crime is totally unknown. West Sylvania's national animal is the Zebra Spider, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

West Sylvania is ranked 31,721st in the world and 1,123rd in Osiris for Most Politically Free, scoring 78.57 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
