The Holy Empire of Windhelme is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by JahManRock with an even hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, digital currency, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, devout population of 866 million Windhelmeans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Solitude. The average income tax rate is 47.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Windhelmean economy, worth 88.6 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 102,313 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, plain-clothes police officers follow Dàguó tourists everywhere they go, the nation's hospitals are criticized for caring more about profits than patients, and Windhelmean watches list strained wrists as a common side effect. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Windhelme's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Windhelme is ranked 129,159th in the world and 271st in The Free Nations Region for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 223.13 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
