The United Kingdom of Winterfeld is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by His Majesty Harald V of House Glücksburg with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, suspicion of poets, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 7.977 billion Winterfeldians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Trondheim. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 18.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Winterfeldian economy, worth 765 trillion Winterfeld Crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 95,976 Winterfeld Crowns, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

Wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, Winterfeldians caught jaywalking often have their houses seized by the police, elections are won by the candidate who makes the best 'yo mama' jokes, and the wheel has been patented by at least a hundred people. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Winterfeld's national animal is the Huargo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Sidr.

Winterfeld is ranked 25,728th in the world and 7th in Union Hispanica for Most Developed, scoring 78.21 on the Human Development Index.
