OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Federal Republic of Winklebottom is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, intelligent population of 8.119 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 Social Equality are on the agenda. 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.

Citizens select which government department gets their income tax Winks each year, leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, coalition governments are essential to passing new laws, and the mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations. 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 9th in the Pacific and 343rd in the world for Most Godforsaken, with 413 Dawkins.
