The Not Kenneth Branagh of Western Fardelshufflestein is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Alastair Kehrer IV tHe bELoVeD with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.184 billion Western Fardelshufflesteinians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Hamletberg. The average income tax rate is 70.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Western Fardelshufflesteinian economy, worth 279 trillion schlubs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 87,764 schlubs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, there's some really clean windows in Western Fardelshufflesteinian houses, sex education has become an intricate maze of stick figures and complex metaphors, and politicians are often seen attending regional history classes at primary schools within their constituencies. 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 151,734th in the world and 4,888th in the South Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.29 weapons per person.
