The Republic of Westonskaya is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Nomer Odin with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, unlimited-speed roads, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 6.041 billion Weskayans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Krasnyi Volk. The average income tax rate is 68.0%.

The powerhouse Weskayan economy, worth 542 trillion Kredits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 89,834 Kredits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

A long-distance hike gets students geared up for a long day at school, vacationing hippies and old ladies are regularly arrested for bringing back contraband basketry, access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery, and citizens are frequently searched for illegal weapons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Westonskaya's national animal is the Red Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secularism.

Westonskaya is ranked 221,466th in the world and 5,217th in Osiris for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -9 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
