The Free Land of Western wanderers is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Gabriel Stiner with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.948 billion Western wanderersians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of der Führer Palast. The average income tax rate is 43.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Western wanderersian economy, worth 371 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 125,940 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
Childish pranks are no laughing matter, war vets look after war animals, frightened witnesses and seriously ill jurors wear the same handcuffs as the defendant, and it's always rabbit season. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Western wanderers's national animal is the Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
