The Republic of Westonskaya is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Nomer Odin with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.764 billion Weskayans 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, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Krasnyi Volk. The average income tax rate is 67.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Weskayan economy, worth 145 trillion Kredits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 82,590 Kredits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, sections of the police receive paramilitary training, people are more interested in gossip about the private lives of politicians than their policies, and tax assessment offices double as polling stations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Westonskaya's national animal is the Red Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secularism.

Westonskaya is ranked 30,836th in the world and 1,546th in Osiris for Most Developed, scoring 73.58 on the Human Development Index.
