The Kingdom of Wombelland is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chancellor Edith Palme with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, daily referendums, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 10.247 billion Wombelians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wombeldon. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 54.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Wombelian economy, worth a remarkable 2,292 trillion Wombel Talers a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 223,750 Wombel Talers, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

It's a long jump to get onto the housing ladder, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, people who stay late at the office often come home to find their own funeral being planned, and a signed affidavit from a prominent anti-corruption advocate declares that he is in fact a crook after all. Crime is totally unknown. Wombelland's national animal is the Oriole, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wombelland is ranked 1,293rd in the world and 34th in Europe for Most Pacifist, with 211.82 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
