Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federal Republic of Winklebottom is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.91 billion Winktonians 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 medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winkopolis. The average income tax rate is 97.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Winklebottomian economy, worth a remarkable 3,168 trillion Winks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 245,445 Winks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The Winklebottom Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, military funding has been stripped back, and mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field. Crime is totally unknown. Winklebottom's national animal is the Rook, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Winklebottom is ranked 2,278th in the world and 64th in the Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 8,082.02 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
