The Crimson Kingdom of Westwind is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Westwind with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-working population of 34.293 billion Westwindians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The medium-sized, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alexandria. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 40.8%.

The all-consuming Westwindian economy, worth a remarkable 2,394 trillion Equiliants a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Pizza Delivery, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 69,838 Equiliants, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 211,684 per year while the poor average 17,918, a ratio of 11.8 to 1.

Future leaders of Westwind regularly dismiss pressing political issues when available options don't conform to their worldview, the government's suicide hotline now redirects callers to local tax lawyers, the Westwindian delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...", and the government terminates employment with extreme prejudice. Crime is totally unknown. Westwind's national animal is the Dream Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Westwind is ranked 175,155th in the world and 5,127th in the West Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -7.56 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
