The Republic of West-Skyterra is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by Schnitzel with a fair hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 894 million West-Skyterrans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Administration, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skylin. The average income tax rate is 58.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong West-Skyterran economy, worth 54.3 trillion Terras a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Tourism, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 60,755 Terras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A suspicious number of John Smiths are known to donate to West-Skyterran politicians, truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail, convicted murderers are free to walk the streets provided they attend rehabilitation classes, and businesses often fire workers in favour of cheaper automatic systems. 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 85,012th in the world and 3,300th in the South Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 1,860.93 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
