The Free Land of Westonskaya is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Aryler Qwarib with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 911 million Westonians 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wulfruna. The average income tax rate is 71.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Westonian economy, worth 69.2 trillion Libertas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 75,937 Libertas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, sharks are enjoying their deliveries of canned food, hackers post hourly updates on international summits, and jails have become colloquially known as 'vampire houses'. 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 Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Westonskaya is ranked 146,300th in the world and 698th in The Communist Bloc for Highest Drug Use, scoring 9.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
