The Watchfires of Westmorland is a gargantuan, safe nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, avowedly heterosexual populace, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, devout population of 20.475 billion Westmorlandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 45.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Westmorlandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,697 trillion $$s a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 82,928 $$s, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A murderous reputation can revitalise a flagging celebrity career, pulling weeds is seen as a threat to national security, flash floods that dams could have controlled regularly ravage small towns in mountain valleys, and the nation has nearly as many history museums as Westmorlandians. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Westmorland's national animal is the Loxosceles reclusa.

Westmorland is ranked 201,771st in the world and 1st in Westmoore for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 26.11 on the Hayek Index.
