The Dictatorship of Westenhald is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its vat-grown people, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 421 million Westenhaldians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Uylivirmin Hold. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 72.0%.

The all-consuming Westenhaldidal economy, worth 48.8 trillion Uvigelds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 115,981 Uvigelds, with the richest citizens earning 7.1 times as much as the poorest.

Vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, thieves find battery shops juicier targets than banks, and punk rockers smash it up and then clean it up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Westenhald's national animal is the Crocodile, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Westenhald is ranked 30,202nd in the world and 971st in the South Pacific for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 53.9 Whatever.
