The Into Nordic of West Sylvania is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mark Luther with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.465 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, 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 average income tax rate is 99.9%.

The enormous but inefficient West Sylvanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,191 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 reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 141,703 Ennats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, and suit-clad businessmen have been taking advantage of the relaxed welfare qualifications by shopping with food stamps. 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 22,891st in the world and 1,211th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 72.69 on the Human Development Index.
