The It Takxs A Fxw Xdits of Westinor is a huge, safe nation, ruled by advxt with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic population of 825 million Westinorians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Astoria. The average income tax rate is 83.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Westinorian economy, worth 92.6 trillion marxes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 112,212 marxes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

For the sake of 'public interest' news programs tell viewers how to home-make Sarin gas bombs, every spring railroad foundations erode to reveal human remains, the combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage, and the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Westinor's national animal is the bull pxnguin 🐧, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Westinor is ranked 141,954th in the world and 6,440th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 32.67 on the Rand Index.
