OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Federal Republic of Winklebottom is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 7.117 billion hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although Social Welfare and Social Equality are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winkopolis. The average income tax rate is 99%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

The nation has an international reputation for compassion, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, a government program is underway to revitalize Winklebottom's beaches, and motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours. 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 4,258th in the Pacific and 108,379th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.031 Stalins.
