OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Federal Republic of Winklebottom is a colossal, genial nation, renowned for its unlimited-speed roads. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 7.149 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 on the agenda. 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.

Fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, the breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in Winklebottom, police officers are seen patrolling the streets armed with satellite-guided truncheons, and litter collection has replaced fast food as the most popular after-school job. 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 4,625th in the Pacific and 121,288th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -12 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
