The Holy Orange Primitocracy of Western Scientificum is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Ow I stubbed my toe with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, fear of technology, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.212 billion Western Scientists are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Spirituality, with Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Healthcare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Western Scientificum City. The average income tax rate is 72.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Western Scientist economy, worth a remarkable 1,852 trillion coins we found on the streets 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Basket Weaving, Furniture Restoration, and Tourism. 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 130,327 coins we found on the streets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Students who refuse to pray are expelled from school, dining out often involves Nuublies on the plate no matter what you order, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, and artists are pillars of society. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Western Scientificum's national animal is the Nuubly, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is a major religion.

Western Scientificum is ranked 55,997th in the world and 1,983rd in the Rejected Realms for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,731.16 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
