The Not Kenneth Branagh of Western Fardelshufflestein is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Alastair Kehrer IV tHe bELoVeD with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.797 billion Western Fardelshufflesteinians 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Hamletberg. The average income tax rate is 68.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Western Fardelshufflesteinian economy, worth 162 trillion schlubs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 90,265 schlubs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Western Fardelshufflestein Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, Kenneth Branaghism has been named as Western Fardelshufflestein's national religion, owners of man-portable particle accelerator backpacks are advised not to cross the streams, and most people suffer from some form of hearing loss. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Western Fardelshufflestein's national animal is the Eurasian brown bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Kenneth Branaghism.

Western Fardelshufflestein is ranked 54,613th in the world and 1,790th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,179.86 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
