OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Community of Piper Winter is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Piper Alexandrina Winter with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.528 billion Winterians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valenska. The average income tax rate is 57.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Piper Winterian economy, worth 448 trillion Crowns a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 47,057 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, the government has legalised small-scale capitalism, 50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, and glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Piper Winter's national animal is the Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Piper Winter is ranked 50,778th in the world and 17th in Wintercrest for Smartest Citizens, with 39.74 quips per hour.
