The Kingdom of Wombelland is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Chancellor Robert Siebel with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, complete lack of prisons, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, cheerful population of 11.759 billion Wombelians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wombeldon. The average income tax rate is 19.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wombelian economy, worth a remarkable 2,707 trillion Wombel Talers a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 230,288 Wombel Talers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The WBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, and public projects are synonymous with yawn-inducing conformity. Crime is totally unknown. Wombelland's national animal is the Oriole, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wombelland is ranked 111,644th in the world and 414th in Europe for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 73.56 on the Hayek Index.
