Winn is a republic in Antarephia. It shares a border with AN142f in the west, Lons in the north-west, AN146 in the north, Esterlon in the east, and Condeuva in the south. Additionally, the country of Saint Almath is a semi-independent nation within the country, nestled between Winn and Lons.

History

Politics

Administrative Divisions

Winn is divided into 50 baronies, including Saint Almath, which despite being an independent country, is also a barony under Winnster rule. These baronies, except Saint Almath, are grouped into 8 national regions. Each barony contains a number of municipalities, as well. The national regions send representatives into the National Winn Senate, while regional government is done by the baronies.

Municipalities

Each of the baronies is further divided into municipalities, typically up to 8 in each barony. These municipalities each have a mayor and a local council attached to them, which are elected every 5 years in nationally organized local elections. Some larger cities such as Giddham, Gidsmuthe, Stanley and Endry are split into multiple municipalities. The city of Ebbick is also split in two, between the island part of the city and the mainland.

Language

Throughout all of Winn, Ingerish is a spoken language. However, in northwestern baronies such as Poreswhilde and Binsly, Lonish is also common. Poreswhilde is officially classed as a bilingual barony. Additionally, despite not being spoken much at all, the area around Anghireston and Yearswall baronies has had sizable Gaerman influences, most notably through some placenames in the area. Similarly, Oldcross and Tourlingue carry some Franquese influence, although this is less noticable, for example in the name of Tourlingue barony.
