The Kingdom of Winston Island is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Chancellor Margaret Harrison with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, digital currency, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.722 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 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 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Winstonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,124 trillion pacific credits a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 145,570 pacific credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, a popular saying is "a chicken for every pot and an abortion clinic on every street", textbooks are exactly twice as heavy as they used to be, and bins outnumber trees in city parks. 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 jaguar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Winston Island is ranked 124,238th in the world and 5,340th in the South Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -3.67 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
