The People's Commonwealth of The Wind Islands is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Theá Yá with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, ban on automobiles, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.071 billion Wind Islanders love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Átó. The average income tax rate is 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Wind Islander economy, worth 146 trillion Mánas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 136,386 Mánas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Frat-house partying has become the national pastime, executions are marked by quiet dignity and maybe a final round or two of whist, the government funds large training centres to turn Tuataras into functioning members of society, and soldiers' positions are given away by the glint of their bayonets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Wind Islands's national animal is the Tuatara, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Golden Moon.

The Wind Islands is ranked 32,477th in the world and 110th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Highest Drug Use, scoring 91.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
