OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Federal Republic of Winklebottom is a colossal, socially progressive nation, notable for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate, intelligent population of 8.072 billion Winklebottomians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Social Welfare and Commerce are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winkopolis. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

Politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes, the mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, and Winklebottom's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region. Crime is totally unknown. Winklebottom's national animal is the Rook, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Wink.

Winklebottom is ranked 6th in the Pacific and 329th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 371 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
