The United States of Westerlonia is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 711 million Westerlonians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 34.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Westerlonian economy, worth 42.5 trillion khalis a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 59,820 khalis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside, truancy levels are on the rise ever since school registers were banned, citizens who plan overseas vacations are barred from running for political office, and diminutive Westerlonian generals are feared for their aggressiveness. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Westerlonia's national animal is the bull, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Westerlonia is ranked 134,826th in the world and 4,664th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 1,052.99 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
