The Contrarian Country of The Double Wing is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mister Head Coach with an iron fist, and notable for its ban on automobiles, infamous sell-swords, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 23.013 billion Double Wingers are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Gridiron Majesty. The average income tax rate is 48.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Double Wingian economy, worth a remarkable 3,741 trillion Pig$kins a year, is highly specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 162,587 Pig$kins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The well-off amuse themselves by organizing upstairs-downstairs stories within their second homes, 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song, Double Wing'd Boars have more rights than the average citizen, and plain-clothes police officers follow Dàguó tourists everywhere they go. Crime is a major problem. The Double Wing's national animal is the Double Wing'd Boar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Fellowship of the Wing.

The Double Wing is ranked 206,546th in the world and 443rd in NationStates for Most Avoided, scoring 0.24 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
