The Republic of Westlantis is a massive, safe nation, notable for its smutty television, pith helmet sales, and public floggings. The hard-working, democratic population of 1.03 billion Westlantisians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of West Atlantis. The average income tax rate is 46.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Westlantisian economy, worth 125 trillion Westmarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 121,934 Westmarks, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life, every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government, smoking is banned in public areas, and people accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Westlantis's national animal is the Black Leopard, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Westlantis is ranked 16,293rd in the world and 548th in the South Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 10.01 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
