The Colony of West Wind Valley is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.055 billion West Wind Valleyians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 60.0%.

The West Wind Valleyian economy, worth 94.8 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Gambling, Pizza Delivery, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 46,147 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

Leader's Dreadnought-class tankbuster limousine is said to have more ammunition than the entire Brancalandian Army, children who express a belief in Santa are labelled 'delusional cultists', government bureaucrats shut down teenage yard-raking businesses for being counter-revolutionary, and the nation's youth voluntarily goes to bed early out of sheer tiredness from their working days. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. West Wind Valley's national animal is the purr4, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

West Wind Valley is ranked 197,885th in the world and 27th in Geimugyoukai for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -4 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
