Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federal Republic of Winklebottom is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.199 billion Winktonians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winkopolis. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Winklebottomian economy, worth a remarkable 3,228 trillion Winks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 244,591 Winks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, and a government program is underway to revitalize Winklebottom's beaches. Crime is totally unknown. Winklebottom's national animal is the Rook, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Winklebottom is ranked 158,306th in the world and 7,817th in the Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -441.56 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
