The People's Commonwealth of The Wind Islands is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Theá Yá with a fair hand, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, sprawling nuclear power plants, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.838 billion Wind Islanders are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

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 516 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 181,971 Mánas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Clowns are being rounded up and admitted to mental institutions, artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, tourist operators promise visitors tours of live burning shipwrecks and plane crash sites, and international terrorists often get their weapons supply in The Wind Islands. 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 74,293rd in the world and 266th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.51 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
