The Federal Republic of Winklebottom is a colossal, safe nation, renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.845 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, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Industry, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winkopolis. The average income tax rate is 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Winklebottomian economy, worth a remarkable 1,894 trillion Winks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 214,200 Winks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, the breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in Winklebottom, and citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages. Crime is totally unknown. Winklebottom's national animal is the Rook, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
