Location: Thaecia



Population2.167 billion



The Republic of WESTERHOUSE is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.167 billion Westerhousians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Melcombe. The average income tax rate is 76.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse WESTERHOUSEian economy, worth 189 trillion Ducats a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 87,249 Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cremation is compulsory for the deceased, whole-wheat loaves can only be ordered on the dark web, foreigners with shady pasts are fleeing the country, and torture is illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. WESTERHOUSE's national animal is the Crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

WESTERHOUSE is ranked 49,488th in the world and 65th in Thaecia for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 3,796.46 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
