The Protectorate of South Winther is a tiny, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy and stringent health and safety legislation. The quiet, industrious population of 12 million South Wintherians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 45.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The weak South Wintherian economy, worth 286 billion Rhan dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Basket Weaving, Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 23,856 Rhan dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, it is illegal to make racist remarks in public, preschoolers practice disarming active shooters before naptime, and meat is a luxury afforded only to the wealthy. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Winther's national animal is the Golden Eagle.

South Winther is ranked 149,724th in the world and 27th in Greater Cyngland for Nudest, with 101.25 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
