Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Federal Republic of Winklebottom is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, daily referendums, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 9.777 billion Winklebottomians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winkopolis. The average income tax rate is 8.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Winklebottomian economy, worth a remarkable 1,355 trillion Winks a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 138,674 Winks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Embarrassed police officers wear spandex and carry net guns, teenagers across the country are celebrating the defeat of a national curfew bill, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, and any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist. Crime is totally unknown. Winklebottom's national animal is the Rook, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Winklebottom is ranked 1,831st in the Pacific and 57,760th in the world for Largest Public Sector, scoring 15 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
