The Kingdom of Wombelland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Chancellor Robert Siebel with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of prisons, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful population of 12.481 billion Wombelians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wombeldon. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 55.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Wombelian economy, worth a remarkable 2,923 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 234,204 Wombel Talers, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

There has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, the citizenship exam requires years of study to actually pass, workers tend to schedule naps during all-hands meetings, and the only science is political science. Crime is totally unknown. Wombelland's national animal is the Oriole, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wombelland is ranked 14,766th in the world and 216th in Europe for Highest Poor Incomes, with 85,965.74 Standard Monetary Units.
