The Grand Duchy of Wimborne is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 234 million Wimborners 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 large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 50.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Wimbornesque economy, worth 11.8 trillion Dolans a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 50,571 Dolans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside, and farting etiquette is taught in schools. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wimborne's national animal is the armadillo, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Wimborne is ranked 11,276th in the world and 608th in The North Pacific for Most Pacifist, with 134.06 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
