The Federal Republic of Winklebottom is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 21.209 billion Winktonians 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 medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winkopolis. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Winklebottomian economy, worth a remarkable 8,029 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 highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 378,585 Winks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

In a desperate bid for cheap airfare Winktonians can be seen jogging in a rubber suit just before flying, the comic book series 'Leader and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, the government is a clear-cut case of tyranny by majority, and catching an old friend by surprise on the street can be a shocking experience. Crime is totally unknown. Winklebottom's national animal is the Rook, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Winklebottom is ranked 218,433rd in the world and 6,763rd in the Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 5.11 Insults Per Minute.
