The Bringer of Winter of Iym Winterless is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Iym Winterless with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 2.842 billion Scholars 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Scholarly Palace. The average income tax rate is 64.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Scholarly economy, worth 265 trillion Iymian Gold Coins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 93,306 Iymian Gold Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children as young as eight can be found working in factories, The Light has been named as Iym Winterless's national religion, rude retail employees are now even ruder homeless panhandlers, and evasive politicians don't fail to strongly commit to not committing to a course of non-inaction. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Iym Winterless's national animal is the Crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Light.

Iym Winterless is ranked 84,479th in the world and 3,082nd in the South Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 55.25 Insults Per Minute.
