The Grand Duchy of Western End Them Son is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Daddy with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.986 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 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient El Gaian economy, worth a remarkable 2,125 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 reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 266,139 Souls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, police struggle to solve crimes due to the lack of fingerprint records, the Twelve Steps To Logging Off is the most popular mobile download, and the government is spending millions on 'trust campaigns' in an effort to win back the public's support. 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 9,658th in the world and 396th in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 8,560.37 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
