Wintermoot III

Population12.728 billion


The Old Guardian of Wintermoot III is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 12.728 billion Wintermoot-ians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The Wintermoot IIIian economy, worth 412 trillion nones a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Soda Sales industry. Average income is 32,413 nones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government is avowedly atheist. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wintermoot III's national animal is the none, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wintermoot III is ranked 53,455th in the world and 1,914th in Lazarus for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 67.52 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
