The Queen's State of Winchester is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its complete lack of public education, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 16.895 billion Winchesterites live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.6%.

The very strong Winchesterian economy, worth 828 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Woodchip Exports, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 49,039 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 333,411 per year while the poor average 2,634, a ratio of 126 to 1.

Voting is voluntary, the tenet of free speech is held dear, citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, and deers are considered a delicacy. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Winchester's national animal is the deer, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Winchester is ranked 29,739th in the world and 2nd in Great Britain and Northern Ireland for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 5,659.79 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
