West Siders

Population43.129 billion



The Free Land of West Siders is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic, cheerful population of 43.129 billion West Siderians 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 large, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Welfare, although Education, Environment, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Compton. The average income tax rate is 59.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving West Siderian economy, worth a remarkable 3,111 trillion Dbones a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 72,135 Dbones, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, a new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, and private law firms are unheard of. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. West Siders's national animal is the giruffalo, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

West Siders is ranked 28,965th in the world and 10th in Stargate for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 192.5 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
