The Contrarian Country of The Double Wing is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Mister Head Coach with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, ban on automobiles, and lack of airports. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 24.586 billion Double Wingers 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 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 64.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Double Wingian economy, worth a remarkable 4,233 trillion Pig$kins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 172,183 Pig$kins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, money grows on trees, oxygen is commonly known as 'breathinium', and The Double Wing's first free elections in recent memory have been successfully concluded. Crime is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. 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 3,537th in the world and 25th in NationStates for Rudest Citizens, with 177.84 Insults Per Minute.
