Western End Them Son

Population8.477 billion

CapitalMaxwell City


The Grand Duchy of Western End Them Son is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Daddy with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 8.477 billion El Gaians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maxwell City. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient El Gaian economy, worth a remarkable 2,232 trillion Souls a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 263,376 Souls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Trails to natural wonders are littered with trash from reality film crews, pawn shop reality shows dominate basic cable, the government props up questionable pizza establishments in the name of health, and anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Western End Them Son's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Western End Them Son is ranked 161,970th in the world and 4,329th in the West Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -4.24 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
