The Dictatorship of Westenhald is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, vat-grown people, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 454 million Westenhaldians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Uylivirmin Hold. The average income tax rate is 73.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Westenhaldidal economy, worth 53.0 trillion Uvigelds 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 slick, highly efficient black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 an impressive 116,811 Uvigelds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Former slave-owners hope there are no hard feelings when they apply for jobs from their erstwhile charges, napalm is the tool of choice for disabling eco-unfriendly forestry operations, prisoners pray grey skies are gonna clear up, and five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Westenhald's national animal is the Crocodile, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Westenhald is ranked 18,818th in the world and 650th in the South Pacific for Most Secular, with 62.94 Atheism Rate.
