The Windowmakers of Window Land is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The Grand Window with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 9.348 billion Windows are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous 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 99.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Window Landian economy, worth a remarkable 1,800 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 192,583 Windows, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, and belligerent citizens shoot at passing clouds for 'violating their airspace'. 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 1,258th in the world and 24th in Forest for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 673.26 Bank.
