The Barony of Windiria is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by STUUURM with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, strictly enforced bedtime, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.614 billion Shady Missionaries are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Environment also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Windire City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 76.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Shady economy, worth a remarkable 2,942 trillion Immigrants a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 233,257 Immigrants, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,038,021 per year while the poor average 32,622, a ratio of 31.8 to 1.

Public shaming has become the favoured form of punishment, children playing with walkie-talkies are told to 'get a job', no true communist is an unbeliever, and children have taken to using semaphore in light of the recent mobile phone ban. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Windiria's national animal is the Immigrant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is STUUURM.

Windiria is ranked 21,723rd in the world and 2nd in The Bunny Fire for Most Developed, scoring 80.22 on the Human Development Index.
