Location: The North Pacific

Regional Influence: Shoeshiner


The Republic of Winding Rain is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Rhyan Torrent with an even hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.475 billion Rainians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rayna. The average income tax rate is 83.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Winding Rainian economy, worth 130 trillion torrents a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 88,259 torrents, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Parents dread their examinations more than their children, rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes, EULAs remind customers that "Private Mode" is a browser setting rather than a promise, and the police strictly enforce off-limit zones for tourists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Winding Rain's national animal is the hummingbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Winding Rain is ranked 201,657th in the world and 9,705th in The North Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -2.83 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
