|Leader||The Council of Commons|
|Animal||Western Black Squirrel|
The Commonwealth of Westerlies is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Council of Commons with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.491 billion Westerlians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The large, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maclean. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.
The frighteningly efficient Westerlian economy, worth 766 trillion Commonmarks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 170,620 Commonmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, anti-government web sites are springing up, the government is engaging in an agricultural trade war with Maxtopia, and ersatz chicken has left the nation's citizens with a bad taste in their mouths. Crime is totally unknown. Westerlies's national animal is the Western Black Squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is None.
