The People's Republics of Winnipeg is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Marshal Robert Isoeph with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, unlimited-speed roads, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 41.472 billion Winnipegans enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is solely concerned with Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winnipeg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Winnipegian economy, worth an astonishing 10,143 trillion Victory Chits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 244,582 Victory Chits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 952,695 per year while the poor average 42,893, a ratio of 22.2 to 1.

Punitive tariffs protect local industry, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Winnipeg, the government is pursuing a new programme aimed at promoting cultural sophistication, and euthanasia is legal. Crime is totally unknown. Winnipeg's national animal is the Moose, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Winnipeg is ranked 10,823rd in the world and 2nd in The New Meritocracy for Most Patriotic, with 44.55 flags saluted per person per day.
