Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Federal Republic of Winklebottom is a colossal, safe nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, hatred of cheese, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 9.318 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 large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Industry, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winkopolis. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Winklebottomian economy, worth a remarkable 2,089 trillion Winks a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 224,294 Winks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Organ donation rates have hit a new low, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', and the WBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays. Crime is totally unknown. Winklebottom's national animal is the Rook, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Winklebottom is ranked 6,027th in the Pacific and 136,156th in the world for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -6 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
