The Windowmakers of Window Land is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The Grand Window with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 7.1 billion Windows 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 enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Window City. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Window Landian economy, worth a remarkable 1,340 trillion Windows 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 impressive 188,823 Windows, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room, fake designer clothes are shredded and burnt while many in the world don't have a shirt on their back, interviewees for teaching jobs are waterboarded to "reveal undesirable histories", and internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Window Land's national animal is the Window, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Window Land is ranked 202,529th in the world and 409th in Forest for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -21.45 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
