Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federal Republic of Winklebottom is a gargantuan, genial nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.936 billion Winktonians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized 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 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Winklebottomian economy, worth a remarkable 2,355 trillion Winks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 197,324 Winks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation, the Winklebottom Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, every workday begins with group therapy, and skateboarding is considered a form of diplomacy. Crime is totally unknown. Winklebottom's national animal is the Rook, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Winklebottom is ranked 1,312th in the world and 20th in the Pacific for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
