The Winter Wonder of Westinor is a massive, genial nation, ruled by advent with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.937 billion Westinorians 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 enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ailarvale. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Westinorian economy, worth 300 trillion Flying Gold Coins a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 155,144 Flying Gold Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

In a baffling press conference advent proudly dismantled a broken door, from the highest mountain to the deepest cave - one can always count on finding a good cell signal in Westinor, advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, and the Westinorian Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Westinor's national animal is the zombie grr 🐧, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Westinor is ranked 155,935th in the world and 6,282nd in The North Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring zero on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
