The Final Coming of Winter is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Stark with an even hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, flagrant waste-dumping, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed population of 9.826 billion Winterians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winterfell. The average income tax rate is 28.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Winterian economy, worth 811 trillion Ices a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 82,536 Ices, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Winter successfully hosted the The Hole Olympics, abortions are routinely performed in Winter's hospitals, Members of Parliament are often found living in cardboard boxes, and confused drunks wake up to irate drill sergeants whipping them into shape. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Winter's national animal is the direwolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Winterdom.

Winter is ranked 55,914th in the world and 10th in The Hole for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,690.85 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
