The Republic of Western Santos is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Bob with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, barren, inhospitable landscape, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 22.091 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 an astonishing 10,065 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 455,653 Shrapnels, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,506,843 per year while the poor average 42,013, a ratio of 59.7 to 1.

All recreational drugs are legal, fast-food chefs regularly win Health Innovation Awards for spitting on burgers, the government helps teach children how to kill a man from six paces, and it's a long jump to get onto the housing ladder. 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 225th in the world and 2nd in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 14,414.1 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
