Win Mints

Population7.317 billion

LeaderAlmighty Dollar


The Combined Corporations of Win Mints is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Almighty Dollar with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 7.317 billion Minties live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken individuals juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pepperland. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Mintian economy, worth a remarkable 2,638 trillion cookies a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 360,642 cookies, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,154,197 per year while the poor average 27,511, a ratio of 78.3 to 1.

Firebombing politicians' offices has become a common way of expressing dissatisfaction, sales of trenchcoats are on the rise, popular candidates who don't suffer last-second political scandals tend to get fished out of the Pepperland River, and tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Win Mints's national animal is the cookie, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Corporatism.

Win Mints is ranked 208,110th in the world and 6,402nd in the West Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 2.92 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
