The Winter Wonder of Westinor is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by advent with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.983 billion Westinorians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ailarvale. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Westinorian economy, worth 311 trillion Sparkling Daises a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 157,160 Sparkling Daises, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit, polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation, and devotion to God is only skin-deep. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Westinor's national animal is the Pengu🐧, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Westinor is ranked 3,108th in the world and 161st in The North Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 10,576.58 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
