Location: Anteria

Regional Influence: Shoeshiner


The Republic of West Bank is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 11.384 billion West Bankians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 71.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving West Bankian economy, worth 987 trillion Golds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Furniture Restoration, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 86,778 Golds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bread-gangs raid restaurant waste bins to stockpile uneaten rolls, this year's televised Budget Forecast has been cancelled because there was already one last year, vegetables are crisper thanks to CRISPR, and businesses are forced to bring all work back within the nation's borders. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. West Bank's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

West Bank is ranked 26,656th in the world and 76th in Anteria for Highest Poor Incomes, with 66,247.06 Standard Monetary Units.
