The Woohoo Junction of West Snowtop City is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Woohoo Dazai with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, pith helmet sales, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 16.715 billion West Snowtop Cityians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Woohoo Slope. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The West Snowtop Cityian economy, worth a remarkable 1,393 trillion Snow Tokens a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 83,383 Snow Tokens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

3D printed organs are a breath of new life for the sick and elderly, West Snowtop Cityian TV is considered cruel and unusual punishment in other countries, prisoners can't do number twos without their "toilet buddy" present, and the blind lead the blind in social welfare. Crime is totally unknown. West Snowtop City's national animal is the Black-Winged Kite, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

West Snowtop City is ranked 195,226th in the world and 50th in Anime for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -8.15 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
