OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Federal Republic of Winklebottom is a colossal, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, intelligent population of 8.615 billion Winklebottomians 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 concentrates mainly on Education, although Social Welfare and Commerce 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.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, the mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, and the government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service. 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 1st in the Pacific and 111th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring 259 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
