The Federation of West Whale is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, zero percent divorce rate, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 344 million Westwhelsh 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, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Education, Spirituality, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nilene. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25.8%.
The powerhouse Westwhelsh economy, worth 28.6 trillion dorsals a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Cheese Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 83,044 dorsals, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 291,380 per year while the poor average 17,168, a ratio of 17.0 to 1.
Criminals are thrown to the whales to repay their debt to society, the nationalistic national anthem inspires citizens to literally spit at foreigners, psychological disorders are a taboo subject, and among slaves 'bastard' is an honorific rather than an insult. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. West Whale's national animal is the whale, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.
