The Republic of Western Santos is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Bob with a fair hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, flagrant waste-dumping, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 21.719 billion Western Santosians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sao Vicente. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Western Santosian economy, worth a remarkable 9,882 trillion Shrapnels a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 455,037 Shrapnels, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,524,211 per year while the poor average 41,202, a ratio of 61.3 to 1.

The nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents, Western Santos's Medieval Faire is renowned as one of the best in the region, Western Santos is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, and internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Western Santosian weed picker are way up. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Western Santos's national animal is the Mongoose, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Bobistanity.

Western Santos is ranked 19,272nd in the world and 32nd in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Highest Drug Use, scoring 112 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
