The Federal Republic of Winklebottom is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 23.601 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. 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 9,502 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 402,636 Winks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Polling place volunteers are suddenly opening a huge number of offshore bank accounts, all guns must be registered, preschoolers practice disarming active shooters before naptime, and the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters. Crime is totally unknown. Winklebottom's national animal is the Rook, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Winklebottom is ranked 677th in the world and 17th in the Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 5,184.55 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
