The Free Land of Wintony is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Michael III with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 13.354 billion Wintonians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Healthcare, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wintopedia. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Wintonian economy, worth a remarkable 2,429 trillion smallers a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 181,955 smallers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Real estate agencies are being replaced by naval recruitment offices, the nation has become a pariah for giving pirates letters of marque, short shrift is being given to applications for political asylum from illegal immigrants, and intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works. Crime is relatively low. Wintony's national animal is the Colossus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Wintony is ranked 5,706th in the world and 2nd in The Council of Noteworthy Nations for Fattest Citizens, with 21.18 Obesity Rate.
