The Into Nordic of West Sylvania is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mark Luther with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 17.079 billion Westsylvanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yinzburgh. The income tax rate is 100.0%.

The enormous but inefficient West Sylvanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,524 trillion Ennats a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 147,787 Ennats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, you need two tenors and a coloratura contralto to sing the national anthem properly, every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government, and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. Crime is totally unknown. West Sylvania's national animal is the Zebra Spider, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

West Sylvania is ranked 168,007th in the world and 6,249th in Osiris for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -4.43 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
