The Winter Nomad

The Wintermootery of The Winter Nomad is a gargantuan, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 10.36 billion Winter Nomadians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Social Policy. The average income tax rate is 73.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Winter Nomadian economy, worth 241 trillion nothings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Woodchip Exports industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 23,319 nothings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Winter Nomad's national animal is the polar bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Winter Nomad is ranked 138,239th in the world and 260th in Wintreath for Most Developed, scoring 44.46 on the Human Development Index.
