The Confederacy of The Gentle Wind is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Kenji Ibara with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, state-planned economy, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 21.322 billion Gentle Windians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken morass — is primarily concerned with Environment, although Welfare, Education, and Social Policy are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Soyokaze. The average income tax rate is 88.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Gentle Windian economy, worth 725 trillion barter tokens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Tourism industry. Average income is 34,028 barter tokens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

More money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself, surfing lessons include how to ward off sharks, the national security service are a bunch of crooks, and war vets look after war animals. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Gentle Wind's national animal is the gentle dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Gentle Wind is ranked 17,965th in the world and 15th in Union of Free Nations for Most Influential, scoring 2,628 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
