The Confederacy of Hospitaller West Indies is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 508 million West Hospitallers are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Libertatie. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.3%.

The frighteningly efficient West Hospitaller economy, worth 54.0 trillion West Hospitaller Livres a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and dominated by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 106,302 West Hospitaller Livres, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 966,977 per year while the poor average 1,330, a ratio of 727 to 1.

Urban parents tell their children that the family car went to a farm upstate, celebrity foodies are biting a huge chunk out of the government budget, town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists, and aggressive promotion of global warming puts polar bears on thin ice. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Hospitaller West Indies's national animal is the Saint's Parrot, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hospitaller West Indies is ranked 119,441st in the world and 120th in The Western Isles for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 1,623.06 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
