The Winter Nomad

The Wintermootery of The Winter Nomad is a colossal, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 9.49 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 Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 73.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Winter Nomadian economy, worth 221 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 96,583rd in the world and 94th in Wintreath for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 593 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
