The Republic of West9 is a small, cultured nation, notable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 29 million West9ians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Education. The average income tax rate is 51.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped West9ian economy, worth 1.03 trillion rupees a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 35,425 rupees, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. West9's national animal is the panther.

West9 is ranked 108,502nd in the world and 3,068th in Birb for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 2,567.56 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
