The Federal Republic of Winklebottom is a colossal, genial nation, remarkable for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The compassionate, intelligent population of 8.272 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 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.

It is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, organ donation rates have hit a new low, the government pours millions of Winks into rehabilitation programs annually, and it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools. 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 80th in the Pacific and 3,761st in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 82 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
