Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federal Republic of Winklebottom is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.642 billion Winktonians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winkopolis. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Winklebottomian economy, worth a remarkable 2,169 trillion Winks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 186,335 Winks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act, frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, and there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons'. Crime is totally unknown. Winklebottom's national animal is the Rook, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Winklebottom is ranked 174,264th in the world and 9,491st in the Pacific for Best Weather, with 50 Meters Of Sunlight.
