The Wayward Lightbrand of Westinor is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by advent with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.851 billion Westinorians 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, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ailarvale. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Westinorian economy, worth 525 trillion Gold Bars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 184,176 Gold Bars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lending money has become a major liability, bronze and marble supplies are running low as sculptors depict full-figured subjects, factories grind to a halt every time there is an election, and government officials are held to the highest standard of morality. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Westinor's national animal is the Pengu🐧, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Westinor is ranked 1,961st in the world and 134th in The North Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 326.32 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
