The Federal Republic of Winklebottom is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 19.226 billion Winktonians 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 government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare 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 6,821 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 quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 354,824 Winks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Brancalandian Brie isn't available anywhere in Winklebottom, the carbon tax fund gladly supplies warm blankets when the poor can't pay their heating bills, photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Leader's bedroom, and the government has declared its commitment to multilateralism. Crime is totally unknown. Winklebottom's national animal is the Rook, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Winklebottom is ranked 295th in the world and 8th in the Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 1,209.26 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
