The Time Machine of Wonderton is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.447 billion Wondertonians 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 Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phoenix City. The average income tax rate is 41.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Wondertonian economy, worth 532 trillion WonderDollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 82,594 WonderDollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

New urban roads are threatening city parks, the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, citizens are remarkably well involved in the political process, and door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wonderton's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Wonderton is ranked 39,847th in the world and 2nd in The Thunder Territory for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 120.09 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
