The Federal Republic of Westoc Kinness is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the President of Westoc Kinness with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.837 billion Westoc Kinnessians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Welfare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hong Kong. The average income tax rate is 78.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Westoc Kinnessian economy, worth 317 trillion Westoc Kinnessian Dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 112,024 Westoc Kinnessian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, good-looking soldier boys have celebrity status amongst the nation's homosexuals, no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, and the government is avowedly secular. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Westoc Kinness's national animal is the Sparrow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Science.

Westoc Kinness is ranked 12,786th in the world and 411th in the South Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 80.92 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
