The Benevolent Nation of Winterland

Population13.829 billion

LeaderMr Frost


The Dictatorship of The Benevolent Nation of Winterland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Mr Frost with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 13.829 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 3,292 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 238,073 CADS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, when their backs are against the walls Nukks look out for gay men, and unemployed accountants keep double-entry ledgers of their benefit claims. 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 1,101st in the world and 37th in the South Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 2,015.36 tourists per hour.
