The Kingdom of Wombelland is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Chancellor Robert Siebel with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful population of 16.102 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wombeldon. The average income tax rate is 7.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wombelian economy, worth a remarkable 3,723 trillion Wombel Talers a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 231,235 Wombel Talers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Couples kissing on the street are detained for 'unlawful exchange of genetic material', police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints, manufacturers of biodegradable plastics have to wait for months to show evidence of organic decomposition, and the government response to disaster victims starving for bread is "let them eat stale cake". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Wombelland's national animal is the Oriole, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wombelland is ranked 20,322nd in the world and 60th in Europe for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 117.23 on the Hayek Index.
