The Truly Free State of Western Scientificum is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Nobody with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of public education, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 20.298 billion Western Scientists live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken individuals juggles the competing demands of Administration, Spirituality, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Hut. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Western Scientist economy, worth a remarkable 1,607 trillion Shiny Rocks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Furniture Restoration, and Tourism. Average income is 79,175 Shiny Rocks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

The land is famous throughout the region for its rampant lawlessness, pilots always remember to send their doctors a Maxxmas card, kids are told they can be whoever they want to be when they grow up, and life is somewhat repetitive. Crime is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Western Scientificum's national animal is the Great Silver Bird, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is a minor religion.

Western Scientificum is ranked 271,752nd in the world and 6,467th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -7.27 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
