Location: the South Pacific



Population2.431 billion



The Republic of West-Skyterra is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Schnitzel with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, national health service, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.431 billion West-Skyterrans 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, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skylin. The average income tax rate is 74.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong West-Skyterran economy, worth 153 trillion Terras 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 dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. Average income is 63,041 Terras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

You're never too young to learn how to lie with confidence, the government funds large training centres to turn Falcons into functioning members of society, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. West-Skyterra's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

West-Skyterra is ranked 28,583rd in the world and 892nd in the South Pacific for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 11,035.97 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
