Location: the South Pacific
Regional Influence: Squire
The Most Serene Republic of West Pastafaria is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Grandmaster Chef Fallzangour with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.217 billion Pastafarians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The large government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Welfare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Strascinati. The average income tax rate is 69.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming West Pastafarian economy, worth 134 trillion Vermicellis a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 110,297 Vermicellis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
A National Academy regulates grammar and usage, children must be board certified to append "Jr" to their name, there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, and doctors spend more time writing sick notes than caring for the sick. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. West Pastafaria's national animal is the Wild Spotted Collandar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
