The Winter Wonder of Westinor is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by advent with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.18 billion Westinorians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ailarvale. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Westinorian economy, worth 355 trillion Sparkling Daises a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 163,107 Sparkling Daises, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, and RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Westinor's national animal is the Pengu🐧, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Westinor is ranked 232,668th in the world and 9,777th in The North Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 4,240.8 Standard Monetary Units.
