The Contrarian Country of The Double Wing is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Mister Head Coach with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 24.441 billion Double Wingers 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Gridiron Majesty. The average income tax rate is 64.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Double Wingian economy, worth a remarkable 4,218 trillion Pig$kins a year, is highly specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 172,597 Pig$kins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it, New Gridiron Majesty's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, military training in The Double Wing emphasizes the tactical advantages of stabbing backs, and men of steel get no respect. Crime is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Double Wing's national animal is the Double Wing'd Boar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Fellowship of the Wing.

The Double Wing is ranked 534th in the world and 5th in NationStates for Most Beautiful Environments, with 5,652.71 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
