The Woohoo Junction of West Snowtop City is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Woohoo Dazai with a fair hand, and renowned for its lack of airports, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 15.168 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it 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 1,268 trillion Snow Tokens a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is 83,645 Snow Tokens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

On-call doctors who check their pagers during movies are banned from cinemas for life, feuilletons can only be deciphered with a Galliennais dictionary, mandatory state-funded classes teach Libertarianism, and pausing for applause during a speech is seen as a form of censorship. 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 37,613th in the world and 25th in Anime for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 128.31 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
