The Young Avengers of Wickling is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Bill and Ted with an even hand, and notable for its fear of technology, parental licensing program, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 4.009 billion Wicklingians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Earth. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Wicklingian economy, worth 602 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Gambling, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 150,239 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 9.7 times as much as the poorest.

Private pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are given away freely by the government, the Wicklingian Tourism Bureau has described the abolition of coastal defences as a "kick to the groyne", abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals, and regional governors use national law books as toilet paper. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wickling's national animal is the skrull, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Cards.

Wickling is ranked 47,229th in the world and 21st in Temporary Home for Highest Poor Incomes, with 43,186.49 Standard Monetary Units.
