Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federal Republic of Winklebottom is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, unlimited-speed roads, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.332 billion Winktonians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winkopolis. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Winklebottomian economy, worth a remarkable 2,679 trillion Winks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 217,319 Winks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Abortions are routinely performed in Winklebottom's hospitals, retired racing Rooks are served truffles for breakfast, businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up, and Winklebottom's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region. Crime is totally unknown. Winklebottom's national animal is the Rook, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Winklebottom is ranked 1,605th in the world and 35th in the Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 11,184.67 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
