The Revolutionary Republic of Winst is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Michelle Tourne with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, strictly enforced bedtime, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 9.119 billion Wintonians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Silvus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Wintonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,341 trillion Holds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 147,079 Holds, with the richest citizens earning 8.2 times as much as the poorest.

Michelle Tourne's exquisite office door is replaced monthly due to angry petitioners, masterpieces by male artists are on display in the dumpsters behind the gallery, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, and metal detectors have been banned after a bottle cap caused a riot at the beach. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Winst's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Winst is ranked 126,584th in the world and 13th in Greater Olympus for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 59.43 on the Hayek Index.
