LeaderMarcus Merides


The Democratic States of Westerhold is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Marcus Merides with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, frequent executions, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The democratic population of 1.439 billion Westerholdians 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 medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Starhaven. The average income tax rate is 42.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Westerholdian economy, worth 157 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 109,267 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Construction workers evacuate work sites after finding sharp rocks on the ground, the richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper, the upper class have been throwing riots after hunting was recently banned, and a The North Pacific Tourist Association survey has rated Westerhold #1 for number twos. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Westerhold's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Westerhold is ranked 58,208th in the world and 2,895th in The North Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 3,632.05 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
