Iym Winterless

Population1.203 billion

CapitalThe Scholarly Palace
LeaderIym Winterless


The Bringer of Winter of Iym Winterless is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Iym Winterless with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, devout population of 1.203 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 medium-sized 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 46.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Scholarly economy, worth 124 trillion Scrolls a year, is fairly diversified 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 an impressive 103,767 Scrolls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Flash floods that dams could have controlled regularly ravage small towns in mountain valleys, television executives are interested in turning Iym Winterless's zany home life into a sitcom, Scholarly husbands are dead good at fathering kids, and urban entrepreneurs are busy introducing cockroaches into restaurant kitchens. 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.

Iym Winterless is ranked 66,839th in the world and 2,607th in the South Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 46.31 Effective Tax Rate.
