The Winter Wonder of Westinor is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by advent with a fair hand, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.663 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 Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ailarvale. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Westinorian economy, worth 239 trillion stockings a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 144,107 stockings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

3D printed organs are a breath of new life for the sick and elderly, lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post, Advent's speeches are beloved by insomniacs, and the government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble. 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 elf 🐧, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Winter Spirit.

Westinor is ranked 48th in the world and 15th in The North Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 10,841.9 Bank.
