The Not Kenneth Branagh of Western Fardelshufflestein is a massive, safe nation, ruled by King Alastair Kehrer IV tHe bELoVeD with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.03 billion Western Fardelshufflesteinians 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 large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Hamletberg. The average income tax rate is 65.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Western Fardelshufflesteinian economy, worth 97.7 trillion schlubs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 94,846 schlubs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Western Fardelshufflestein Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, Kenneth Branaghism has been named as Western Fardelshufflestein's national religion, owners of man-portable particle accelerator backpacks are advised not to cross the streams, and most people suffer from some form of hearing loss. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Western Fardelshufflestein's national animal is the Eurasian brown bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Kenneth Branaghism.

Western Fardelshufflestein is ranked 8,537th in the world and 327th in the South Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.56 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
