The Wintrean Monarch of Wintermoot is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Inric Nordrim Kestar with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, daily referendums, and public floggings. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 19.612 billion Wintermootians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wintermoot City. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Wintermootian economy, worth a remarkable 3,503 trillion nothings a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 178,618 nothings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, the government is more interested in identifying problems than fixing them, five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars, and politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wintermoot's national animal is the nothing, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Wintermoot is ranked 267,825th in the world and 406th in Wintreath for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -500.37 on the Hayek Index.
