Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federal Republic of Winklebottom is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.755 billion Winktonians 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, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winkopolis. The average income tax rate is 85.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Winklebottomian economy, worth a remarkable 2,131 trillion Winks a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 181,317 Winks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave, back-alley circumcision clinics are popping up all over the nation, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, and teachers are routinely tested to keep their jobs. 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 1,278th in the world and 19th in the Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.47 Years.
