The Peoples' Republic of The West United States is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Lee with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 4.297 billion West Americans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Victoria. The average income tax rate is 87.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient West United Statesian economy, worth 514 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 119,794 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The state auctions off combat drones to fund war reparations, The West United States successfully hosted the The North Pacific Olympics, the nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, and male politicians lose their jobs for staring too long at their female counterparts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The West United States's national animal is the California Grizzly Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The West United States is ranked 227,210th in the world and 9,054th in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.2 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
