The Charged Up of Westinor is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by advent with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.652 billion Westinorians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ailarvale. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Westinorian economy, worth 469 trillion Gold Bars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 177,005 Gold Bars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in advent's bedroom, preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance, most ambassadors from Westinor retire only a few years after being appointed, and wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Westinor's national animal is the Pengu🐧, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Westinor is ranked 236,328th in the world and 9,623rd in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -12.24 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
