Wynnland has little to no tradition in literature. Although, citizens; including the King, have written various pieces of writing for work or for a hobby.

Music

Subjects of His Majesty enjoy all types of music, but many prefer the old styled Swing Style of music. Members of the Royal Family enjoy listening to these classic tunes whilst doing daily routines, going to the gym, or working. Some of the artists that citizens enjoy listening to are Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Benny Goodman, Dean Martin, and Glen Miller. Many citizens and even the King himself have a history in music. His Serene Highness used to sing in a church choir and for his private school's choir. He eventually dabbled in the Swing Jazz style of music and began singing songs from that era.

The National Anthem itself was first recorded in the era of the jazz swing era, though its not jazz nor swing. Argonnerwaldlied is a German marching song used by the German Empire and the Wehrmacht. The National Anthem was picked because of the fact that it was a German Marching song and it was one of the King's favorites.
