The Grand Duchy of West Zands Sania is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, compulsory military service, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 719 million West Zands Sanians 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 Education, Welfare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lumbarg. The average income tax rate is 26.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming West Zands Sanian economy, worth 71.1 trillion Dinars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 98,860 Dinars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

A traveller who once stubbed a toe on an Air Brancaland flight has been offered asylum, the wealthiest parts of the country receive the most government spending, no one born in West Zands Sania can fix a leaky faucet, and there is something rotten in the state of West Zands Sania. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. West Zands Sania's national animal is the Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

West Zands Sania is ranked 68,319th in the world and 188th in Conch Kingdom for Largest Governments, scoring 16.19 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
