Goodminton was described as a winter dominion, ruled by Overlord Firebaugh.
This alliance was broken when Quisling and Frenemy entered Goodminton's airspace in force and demanded the Side's entire treasury. They were driven off, Frenemy being heavily defeated. However, this left Goodminton with five enemies in the Battlespace, dooming the Side.

Real World References
The name "Goodminton" probably refers to a version of the racquet game Badminton whereby, instead of trying to force the other team to miss the birdie, the goal is to keep the birdie in play as long as possible. Note that Goodminton's crest depicts badminton shuttlecock (birdie) with a halo above it.
This may be a bit of foreshadowing, indicating that the most important thing that this side could accomplish is to keep a particular unit (or birdie) like Wanda in play, even if it means that it cannot win the standard version of the "game" (i.e. war in Erfworld). The name could also be a play on words with "Good-" and "Bad-" minton, so as to suggest the side is "moral".
