The State of Great Winminster is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by PM Williams with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 5.759 billion Cambrians 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 Cambria. The average income tax rate is 82.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cambrian economy, worth 985 trillion Crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 171,159 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The stratosphere is full of "silent but deadly" attacks from PM Williams's rear echelons, the "Dreadnowt" is the pride and joy of the Cambrian Navy, sales of fishnet stockings have reached a record high, and many aides in PM Williams's office are known to be serial jaywalkers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Great Winminster's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Great Winminster is ranked 109,507th in the world and 545th in Europe for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 1,103.15 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
