The Colony of Winchesterville is a huge, genial nation, notable for its ban on automobiles and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 859 million Winchestervilleans 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 medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 39.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Winchestervillean economy, worth 30.7 trillion florins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Pizza Delivery, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 35,692 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, the Winchesterville Mental Asylum Party have recently won seats in parliament, recognizing the Winchestervillean flag qualifies you for citizenship, and board shorts have replaced board rooms. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Winchesterville's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Winchesterville is ranked 46,244th in the world and 2,727th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.85 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
