The Revolutionary Republic of Winst is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Michelle Tourne with an even hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 10.03 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 Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Silvus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 27.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Wintonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,491 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 148,661 Holds, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.

The nation has nearly as many history museums as Wintonians, the team in charge of creating a new writing system have spent months deciding whether or not to use serif or sans-serif characters, a ban on robots in disguise has transformed the entertainment industry, and food voucher forgeries are causing headaches for the police. 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 50,961st in the world and 10th in Greater Olympus for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 2.66 Bank.
