Win Mints

Population7.992 billion

LeaderAlmighty Dollar


The Combined Corporations of Win Mints is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Almighty Dollar with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, rampant corporate plagiarism, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 7.992 billion Minties live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken individuals juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pepperland. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Mintian economy, worth a remarkable 2,885 trillion cookies a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 361,054 cookies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government tells its citizens to 'forgive and forget', teddy bear James Dean (aka "the Rebel Without the Claws") helps convince kids that candy cigarettes are cool, t-shirts displaying a photo of Almighty Dollar performing the Full-Monty are selling out, and young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Win Mints's national animal is the cookie, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Consumerism.

Win Mints is ranked 220,951st in the world and 5,959th in the West Pacific for Best Weather, with -2239 Meters Of Sunlight.
