OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Federal Republic of Winklebottom is a colossal, economically powerful nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 8.436 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.

Winkopolis spends billions upgrading public transport, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, the mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, and schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes. 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 2nd in the Pacific and 127th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring 245 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
