The Federal Republic of West Esung is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Executive President Fitz Daly with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.895 billion West Esunians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Costal Esung City. The average income tax rate is 35.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming West Esunian economy, worth 195 trillion West Esung Electronic Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 103,077 West Esung Electronic Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, and a popular saying is "a chicken for every pot and an abortion clinic on every street". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. West Esung's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

West Esung is ranked 58,009th in the world and 10th in RGBN for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,365.77 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
