The Quill-Bxaring Fanatic of Westinor is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by advxt with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and parental licensing program. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.017 billion Wxstinorians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Astoria. The average income tax rate is 89.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wxstinorian economy, worth 123 trillion marks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 121,200 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, a rolling news ticker tape of disclaimers runs across the bottom of the screen on all TV shows, the government has pledged that not one drop of its citizens' blood will be spilt, and proper policy proposals prerequire professional peer-reviewed papers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Westinor's national animal is the bull pxnguin 🐧, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Westinor is ranked 192,320th in the world and 8,457th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -7.85 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
