The Dictatorship of Westime is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, strictly enforced bedtime, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 328 million Westiminians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pelonton. The average income tax rate is 49.7%.

The all-consuming Westiminian economy, worth 34.0 trillion baht a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 103,547 baht, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Every new toxic waste dump comes with a seal of approval from the government's science advisor, all guns must be registered, the word 'elite' appears as a synonym for various insults in the Westiminian Colonial Thesaurus, and Maxtopians are both starving and giddy after the Westiminian military unleashed its biological weapons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Westime's national animal is the goose, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Westime is ranked 237,761st in the world and 5,519th in the West Pacific for Best Weather, with -12 Meters Of Sunlight.
