The Wayward Lightbrand of Westinor is a massive, safe nation, ruled by advent with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.846 billion Westinorians 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 enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ailarvale. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Westinorian economy, worth 524 trillion Gold Bars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 184,179 Gold Bars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Advent is considering changing the nation's name to Blackacre, all beauty contests have been banned, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, and exceptionally healthy police officers can sprint after crooks for hours on end. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Westinor's national animal is the Pengu🐧, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Westinor is ranked 231,926th in the world and 8,924th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -21.91 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
