The Windowmakers of Window Land is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Grand Window with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.519 billion Windows love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Window City. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Window Landian economy, worth a remarkable 1,006 trillion Windows a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 182,280 Windows, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, citizens are remarkably well involved in the political process, heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-Window treacle machine, and saying "don't do anything that The Grand Window wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Window Land's national animal is the Window, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Window Land is ranked 1,559th in the world and 21st in Forest for Most Cultured, scoring 255 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
