OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Federal Republic of Winklebottom is a colossal, genial nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 8.253 billion Winklebottomians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Social Welfare and Social Equality are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winkopolis. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

Several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', skateparks can be found in every city, and even the most lowly council pen-pusher has the same political power as a senior minister. Crime is totally unknown. Winklebottom's national animal is the Rook, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Wink.

Winklebottom is ranked 79th in the Pacific and 10,333rd in the world for Largest Populations, with 8,253 Capita (millions).
