The Kingdom of Winter and the North is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by King Brandon Stark with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.245 billion are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Religion & Spirituality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winterfell. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 28%. A robust private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Woodchip Exports and Soda Sales.

Society and government have been organized according to a feudal hierarchy, Worship of the Old Gods has been named as Winter and the North's national religion, the nation refuses to provide international aid, and travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Winter and the North's national animal is the Direwolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Worship of the Old Gods, and its currency is the Dragon.

Winter and the North is ranked 273rd in the Rejected Realms and 14,795th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 3 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
