The Republic of West98 is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion. The democratic population of 641 million West98ians 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 large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 38.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped West98ian economy, worth 15.8 trillion Dollars a year, is led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 24,625 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. West98's national animal is the Penguin.

West98 is ranked 207,419th in the world and 2,714th in Birb for Most Developed, scoring 48.33 on the Human Development Index.
