The Kingdom of Winter and the North is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Brandon Stark with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 12.442 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 719 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 28,454th in the world and 112th in Spear Danes for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 11.1 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
