Ataraxie-Ouest or Ataraxia-West is a confederated region in the southwest part of Ataraxia. It borders the Nord region to the north, the Centre region to the northeast and the Sud region to the east.


History

The West Region is essentially composed of the former Kingdom of the Lux, incorporating the former Free City of Port Franqui in its southern tier.


Economy

Primary exports are raw materials (coal, iron ore) and finished goods (cars, heavy machinery).


Demographics

The country is populated largely of native Ataraxians, but the percentage of foreigners has been rising in recent decades, concentrated in major cities.

The West Region has the highest proportion of foreign-born Ataraxians, due to regional control of residency status and a historically-welcoming policy towards immigrants by the Regional government. There are large communities of immigrants from countries around the central ocean, including Khaiwoon, Latina and Commonia, concentrated in the Oyonnax metropolitan area.

The following table lists the largest metropolitan centers of the West Region.
