Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Federal Republic of Winklebottom is a colossal, genial nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 9.962 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.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winkopolis. The average income tax rate is 17.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Winklebottomian economy, worth a remarkable 1,446 trillion Winks a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 145,164 Winks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, people are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer, and the breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in Winklebottom. Crime is totally unknown. Winklebottom's national animal is the Rook, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Winklebottom is ranked 3rd in the Pacific and 411th in the world for Most Pacifist, scoring 1,777 on the Lennon-Springsteen Scale.
