The Grand Duchy of Winterpoint is a very large, genial nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 197 million Winterpointers enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 33.7%.
The Winterpointer economy, worth 8.52 trillion Winterpoint Guilders a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 43,254 Winterpoint Guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.
Citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee, road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans, Leader's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader, and it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Winterpoint's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
