The Republic of West Who Space Program was established to develop and manage our national space research and development program. SPEA encourages the appeal of space, especially among our young people.  SPEA sponsors a West Who youth space program to explore model rocketry as a means of learning about the basics of propelled rocket flight.

Space Director tries on West Who Spacesuit

Could a micronation actually purchase its own space suit?  

Probably not, an astronaut suit is not a commercial item, so it's difficult to determine its' actual cost. However, taking into account both design complexity and harsh environmental conditions of outer space, it seems believable that the price for a real spacesuit starts from two million dollars.
