The People's Commonwealth of The Wind Islands is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Theá Yá with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, compulsory military service, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.874 billion Wind Islanders hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ádó. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Wind Islander economy, worth 526 trillion Mánas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 183,308 Mánas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop, ratings for schools' curricula range from 'Pure as the Driven Snow' to 'Late Night TV', pretending to be prejudiced is a good way to get out of jury duty, and schoolchildren learn an R-rated version of "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 5,362nd in the world and 43rd in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Developed, scoring 93.28 on the Human Development Index.
