The Free Land of Winlah is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 355 million Winlahians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 73.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Winlahian economy, worth 10.8 trillion flowers 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 a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. 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 30,458 flowers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Being Leader has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs, the Betamax versus VHS debate continues to rage strongly in Winlah, in court almost every witness is a hostile witness, and every day at 4am Winlahians wake to pray for the sun to rise. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Winlah's national animal is the cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Winlah is ranked 122,371st in the world and 4,415th in the South Pacific for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 1,640.28 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
