The Dictatorship of Westenhald is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its vat-grown people, state-planned economy, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 431 million Westenhaldians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Uylivirmin Hold. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 72.0%.

The all-consuming Westenhaldidal economy, worth 50.5 trillion Uvigelds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 117,169 Uvigelds, with the richest citizens earning 7.2 times as much as the poorest.

Criminals are put to death while cuddling their favourite teddy bear, the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, the fattest folk in Westenhald look to be the happiest ones, and bris parties are all the rage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Westenhald's national animal is the Crocodile, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Westenhald is ranked 137,258th in the world and 4,558th in the South Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 941.73 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
