No-man's-land spotted with small clan territories. The West is known for its favourable living conditions and hospitable inhabitants, although not as favourable and hospitable as the rumours in the other parts of the known world would make one believe. The machines who live here call themselves "Allied" or "Allies", and their lifestyle is focussed around helping each other. A hungry, lost traveller will have a good chance of meeting a group of Allies who will share some of their fuel. But everything comes at a price in the West.The inhabitants of this region firmly believe that every favour must be repaid. If someone helps them, they will immediately claim to be "in debt" and try to "make up for it" as quickly as possible. Their societal structures revolve around this system of debts, which they keep rigorous track of. This often leads to alliances between the debtor and debtee, but can also be the foundation for unforgiving vendettas - in the case of injustice or slights being repaid. A debt that goes unpaid for too long is a valid reason to kill the debtor in the West. This entire system is actually rooted in the Allied's strong wish for personal independence. Their ideal is being debt-free, and thus completely independent of others. The downright pedantic need to track any possible debt stems from this ideal. The West's hypothetical heroes are powerful, self-sufficient machines that don't need anyone's help to survive.
Demographics & InfrastructureSocial groups in the West tend to be small, consisting of a low number of vehicles. A very common sight are loners or "teams" made up of only two to four vehicles. There is a greater concentration of vehicles and vehicle types from the former Allied countries of the wars here than for example in the North, where the factories produce different parts. Travellers (or outcasts) from Regalia are a frequent sight, and those who want to go to the land of the big clans usually do so by going through the harbor towns that the coast features - other than the adjacent areas of the North, the West has functional harbors.
Historically, the expanse of the West was larger, but the borders have shifted southward as various teams and clans claimed affiliation to the North rather than the West. Despite the two regions fighting together in the past, this causes some controversy.
