The Winter Wonder of Westinor is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by advent with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.221 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, 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 97.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Westinorian economy, worth 364 trillion Golden Chocolate Bars 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 reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 163,943 Golden Chocolate Bars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Workers have their fruitcake and eat it too, Brancalandian Brie isn't available anywhere in Westinor, the Westinorian Babysitters Club has proven to be a huge relief to stressed-out parents across the nation, and the mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations. 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 32,723rd in the world and 965th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 79.52 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
