Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Winter and the North is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by King Brandon Stark with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, avowedly heterosexual populace, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 11.368 billion Winter and the Northians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winterfell. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.3%.

The powerhouse Winter and the Northian economy, worth 657 trillion Dragons a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 57,807 Dragons, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 170,742 per year while the poor average 15,386, a ratio of 11.1 to 1.

Society and government have been organized according to a feudal hierarchy, Worship of the Old Gods has been named as Winter and the North's national religion, the nation refuses to provide international aid, and travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies. Crime is moderate. Winter and the North's national animal is the Direwolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Worship of the Old Gods.

Winter and the North is ranked 36,341st in the world and 1st in Launching Point for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,835.92 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
