The Kingdom of Winston Island is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Chancellor Margaret Harrison with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.996 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Monteros. The average income tax rate is 92.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Winstonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,013 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 144,826 pacific credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, the television adaptation of Jennifer Government is the most popular program in the nation, citizens finish cleaning up after the annual National Treasure Hunt just in time for the next one, and hospitals in Winston Island are too busy serving the needs of the South Pacific to see Winstonians. 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 5,645th in the world and 180th in the South Pacific for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 33,580.15 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
