The United Socialist States of Greater Westerreich is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 565 million Westerreichians 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 large, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 52.8%.

The Westerreichian economy, worth 29.8 trillion Universal Gensokyo Dollars 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 a slick, highly efficient black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. 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 52,717 Universal Gensokyo Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 175,753 per year while the poor average 11,773, a ratio of 14.9 to 1.

No one is worried about government policies any more, faithful allies are always valued, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, and a government program is underway to revitalize Greater Westerreich's beaches. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Westerreich's national animal is the Five Headed Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Greater Westerreich is ranked 150,195th in the world and 45th in Eientei Gensokyo for Most Avoided, scoring 1.48 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
