The Grand Duchy of Wimborne is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 251 million Wimborners enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 46.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Wimbornesque economy, worth 15.6 trillion Dolans a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 61,986 Dolans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

People can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler', tourists outnumber citizens two to one, motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, and dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wimborne's national animal is the armadillo, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Wimborne is ranked 92,700th in the world and 3,477th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 46.4365675028 Days.
