The Contrarian Country of The Double Wing is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Mister Head Coach with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 24.201 billion Double Wingers are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Gridiron Majesty. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 56.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Double Wingian economy, worth a remarkable 4,040 trillion Pig$kins a year, is highly specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 166,964 Pig$kins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 865,885 per year while the poor average 17,444, a ratio of 49.6 to 1.

Parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads, shopkeepers use microscopes to verify the authenticity of banknotes, 13-year-old internet trolls are treated as a threat on par with terrorists, and slavers are real nutters. Crime is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Double Wing's national animal is the Double Wing'd Boar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Fellowship of the Wing.

The Double Wing is ranked 111,078th in the world and 273rd in NationStates for Highest Drug Use, scoring 61.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
