The Midwest Wastelands of West Grove is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.347 billion West Groveans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.6%.

The very strong West Grovean economy, worth 71.6 trillion Caps a year, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 53,159 Caps, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. West Grove's national animal is the Thorny Devil.

West Grove is ranked 67,969th in the world and 1st in Naermtihg for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 78.69 on the Hayek Index.
