The It Takxs A Fxw Xdits of Westinor is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by advxt with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 819 million Westinorians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Astoria. The average income tax rate is 83.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Westinorian economy, worth 91.1 trillion marxes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 111,196 marxes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Contestants on Westinor's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent, there's never enough space in space, police spend their Saturday nights breaking up illegal street races, and power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Westinor's national animal is the bull pxnguin 🐧, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Westinor is ranked 199,573rd in the world and 9,627th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -13.64 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
