Winn (Aeránanue: Uinn) is a republic in Antarephia. It shares a border with Orbayu in the west, Lons in the north-west, AN146 in the north, AN142i in the east, and Condeuva in the south. Its capital is the city of Gidsmuthe, while the largest city is Giddham.
Winn is divided into two linguistic communities, one where Ingerish is spoken, known as Lower Winn, and a slightly smaller part, Upper Winn, which uses Aeránanue. Furthermore, Winn is divided into 17 baronies, 10 in Lower Winn and 6 in Upper Winn, and one split between the two, which function as the local government in the nation. Each barony contains a number of municipalities, as well. Each barony is also divided into one or more Lordships, which have an electoral function, as each lordship has associated with it a number of seats in the Winnster Parliament.
Baronies in Winn are much akin to typical provinces or states. Each of the baronies has its own regional government, capital and flag.

Although officially, only Ultonland is considered to lie in both communities, the baronies of Feirychume, Houlle and Roxpick each contain small amounts of land belonging to a different community from the rest of the barony - for Feirychume this is limited to the town of James III (Jéms Ukelney), for Houlle this is the area south of the Enger, including Booksworth (Bouxuordh), and for Roxpick this is the area east of the Gidinn, including the towns of Uellspergne (Wellspring), and Látich (Lattice).
Each of the baronies is further divided into municipalities. These municipalities each have a mayor and a local council attached to them, which are elected every 5 years in nationally organized local elections. Four large cities, Giddham, Gidsmuthe, Vorystone and Ja-Lomy are split into multiple municipalities.
The currency of Winn is the Winnster Mearing.
In Lower Winn, including Caspica, Ingerish is the common language, and is spoken unanimously. In the lordship of Thysca, and northeastern Poreswhilde, however, Thysthian, a language directly related to Lonish is also spoken. In Upper Winn, Aeránanue is the common tongue, but Ingerish is also commonly spoken, especially closer to the border with Lower Winn. Additionally, Lonish is spoken in some regions in Sieuonn Hech and Tessykhyn near the river Largue.
Winnster Highways are numbered with the prefix N, which stands for "national". A large highway system exists, which also contains some lesser roads, known as "highwayroads". Highways and highwayroads alike use a white typeface on a green background.
Provincial roads use an identifying letter for each barony, followed by a number between 1 and 99 for identification. The icons for these roads are yellow, with a black typeface.
These maximum speeds are the typical maximum speeds - mutations in these occur wherever it is seen as fit.

Film and media
There is a public broadcaster in Winn, the PRTU - Public Radio and Television Union. They operate four nationally available television channels: Winnet 1, Winnet 2, Uinnette 1 and Uinnette 2. The Ingerish and Aeránanue channels are managed by the PRTU in such a way that their programming is identical - Ingerish programs are subtitled for the Aeránanue channels, and Aeránanue programs are often dubbed in Ingerish. The PRTU only produces 2 programmes for these channels, NN Bulletin, the national news bulletin, and Vignette, a short advertising block. The other programmes are produced by seven public broadcasters.
