The Collective of Wineclaw is a colossal, safe nation, renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.946 billion Wineclaws 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 92.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Wineclaw economy, worth 523 trillion cells a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 88,065 cells, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Innocent defendants often plead guilty for fear of receiving a much harsher sentence before jury, referenda are held for every conceivable government action, stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, and officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wineclaw's national animal is the peregrine falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Wineclaw is ranked 152,914th in the world and 8,216th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -212.11 on the Hayek Index.
