The High Empire of Vinstin is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Serene Kaiseri Teijo the IV with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 28.816 billion Vinstaliens 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 Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sulanutpaikka. The average income tax rate is 74.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Vinstalien economy, worth a remarkable 2,530 trillion Markkaa a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 87,810 Markkaa, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The "boy who cried wolf" policy makes sick people reluctant to call an ambulance, bars are packed at all hours, Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned, and street preachers spend more time condemning government bureaucracy than passers-by. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vinstin's national animal is the Northern Black Goose, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is The Blessed Orthodox Church of Vinstin.

Vinstin is ranked 85,659th in the world and 119th in Sonindia for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 2,190.32 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
