The Not Kenneth Branagh of Western Fardelshufflestein is a huge, safe nation, ruled by King Alastair Kehrer IV tHe bELoVeD with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 853 million Western Fardelshufflesteinians 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 large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Hamletberg. The average income tax rate is 65.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Western Fardelshufflesteinian economy, worth 79.8 trillion schlubs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 93,563 schlubs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

King Alastair Kehrer IV tHe bELoVeD has just been declared ruler of Western Fardelshufflestein in an international press conference, bronze and marble supplies are running low as sculptors depict full-figured subjects, the government has completely eliminated all childcare programs, and the Western Fardelshufflestein Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Western Fardelshufflestein's national animal is the Eurasian brown bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Western Fardelshufflestein is ranked 95,863rd in the world and 4,232nd in the South Pacific for Most Secular, with 17.29 Atheism Rate.
