The Impeccably Arranged Snark of The West Pacific Master Dispatch is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Dilber with an iron fist, and notable for its absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.52 billion West Pacificans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Welfare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cathedral of the Guardians. The average income tax rate is 14.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The West Pacifican economy, worth 184 trillion Snarkmarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Furniture Restoration, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 52,506 Snarkmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Pet owners must make a payment if their charges leave a deposit, traffic tickets are punishable by 9000 push-ups, Dilber has been known to threaten dissenting citizens with a machine gun at press conferences, and Dilber is the self-declared God of all The West Pacific Master Dispatch. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. The West Pacific Master Dispatch's national animal is the Platypus and its national religion is Western Orthodoxy.

The West Pacific Master Dispatch is ranked 91,706th in the world and 2,329th in the West Pacific for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 51 Whatever.
