The Federal Republic of Whestcorea is a federal republic of five states and a capital district. It resides in the south of the United Kingdom, from which it declared secession in September of 2015. Whestcorea has four land borders, one with Austenasia, one with St.Charlie, and one with the Dale Republic, bordering the UK in all other directions. Each state constitutionally and nominally has a high level of local autonomy according to the system of federalism, but in practice the Federal Government is responsible for most day-to-day legislation. Whestcorea traces its national origin to the Universal Triumvirate, which originally provided the country's inspiration.
