Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Federal Republic of Winklebottom is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, complete lack of prisons, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.125 billion Winklebottomians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winkopolis. The average income tax rate is 74.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Winklebottomian economy, worth a remarkable 2,047 trillion Winks a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 184,072 Winks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A punitive tax has been placed on harmful emissions, all footpaths have tollbooths, birth rates have hit an all-time low, and the nation leads the Pacific in per capita stalking. Crime is totally unknown. Winklebottom's national animal is the Rook, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Winklebottom is ranked 357th in the Pacific and 15,487th in the world for Lowest Crime Rates, scoring 142.265 on the Relative Freedom From Crime Index.
