The Republic of Winston Island is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Kate Murphy with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 19.707 billion Winstonians 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 large, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Monteros. The average income tax rate is 92.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Winstonian economy, worth a remarkable 2,915 trillion Winstonian vekts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 147,939 Winstonian vekts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Surfing lessons include how to ward off sharks, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, the Monteros Film Festival recently voted 'Winstonian Getting Hit By Football' as best film, and the Winston Island Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Winston Island's national animal is the blue jay, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Winston Island is ranked 168,576th in the world and 3,764th in The North Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 70.52 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
