The Federal Republic of Winklebottom is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, soft-spoken computers, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 20.789 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, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. 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 7,742 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 372,445 Winks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, schoolchildren learn an R-rated version of "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes", embarrassed police officers wear spandex and carry net guns, and police struggle to solve crimes due to the lack of fingerprint records. Crime is totally unknown. Winklebottom's national animal is the Rook, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Winklebottom is ranked 206,447th in the world and 7,477th in the Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -24.54 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
