The Benevolent Nation of Winterland

Population9.455 billion

LeaderMr Frost


The Dictatorship of The Benevolent Nation of Winterland is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mr Frost with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, cheerful population of 9.455 billion Nukks enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of O'Tawa. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Nukkadian economy, worth a remarkable 2,198 trillion CADS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 232,546 CADS, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The recital of citations that follows any political speech can be longer than the speech itself, atheists in the nation feel uneasy living in buildings where they were once vilified, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, and nude art is becoming wildly popular. Crime is totally unknown. The Benevolent Nation of Winterland's national animal is the Moose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Benevolent Nation of Winterland is ranked 3,039th in the world and 79th in the South Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 20,787.22 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
