The People's Democratic Empire of West Litaurdia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Gunther XXVIII with an iron fist, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.169 billion West Litaurdians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Litaurdia. The average income tax rate is 75.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming West Litaurdian economy, worth 334 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 154,059 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, you can say what you like about the genocidal murderers that rule West Litaurdia but at least the trains run on time, citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, and there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. West Litaurdia's national animal is the emu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

West Litaurdia is ranked 54,460th in the world and 235th in Europe for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 4,416.9 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
