Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Federal Republic of Winklebottom is a colossal, cultured nation, renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, rampant corporate plagiarism, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 9.556 billion Winklebottomians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, liberal government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winkopolis. The average income tax rate is 3.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Winklebottomian economy, worth a remarkable 1,260 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 131,865 Winks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, and more and more students are taking up a career in medicine. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Winklebottom's national animal is the Rook, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Winklebottom is ranked 6,728th in the Pacific and 146,357th in the world for Fattest Citizens, scoring -1,274.06 on the Transpolysaturated Intake Scale.
