Window Land

Population8.72 billion

CapitalWindow City
LeaderThe Grand Window


The Windowmakers of Window Land is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The Grand Window with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and aversion to nipples. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.72 billion Windows are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous 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 99.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Window Landian economy, worth a remarkable 1,676 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 Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 192,314 Windows, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, and the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative. 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 46,007th in the world and 108th in Forest for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 224,535 Standard Monetary Units.
