Wintermoot III

The Old Guardian of Wintermoot III is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 14.312 billion Wintermoot-ians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 97.8%.

The Wintermoot IIIian economy, worth 481 trillion nones a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, extremely specialized black market in Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 33,621 nones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government is avowedly atheist. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wintermoot III's national animal is the none, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wintermoot III is ranked 185,063rd in the world and 6,488th in Lazarus for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -8.6 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
