The Young Avengers of Wickling is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Bill and Ted with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, fear of technology, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 3.753 billion Wicklingians 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 Industry, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Earth. The average income tax rate is 69.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wicklingian economy, worth 539 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 143,647 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government has spent days debating the merits of a petition calling for a ban on sporks, politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls, children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life, and each infantry rifle comes pre-loaded with a single white carnation in the barrel. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wickling's national animal is the skrull, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Cards.

Wickling is ranked 194,425th in the world and 20th in Temporary Home for Highest Drug Use, scoring 36 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
