Winkie Country Landmarks

Like all the countries of Oz, the Winkie Country contains various unusual inhabitants and places.

  • Wicked Witch of the West's Castle - This was where the Wicked Witch of the West ruled over the Winkies until she was melted by Dorothy.
  • Tin Palace - A palace that is made out of tin. The Tin Woodman moved from the Wicked Witch's castle because it was too damp.
  • Jack Pumpkinhead's House - Jack Pumpkinhead lives in a giant hollowed-out pumpkin near the Tin Woodman's palace in Winkie Country.
  • Scarecrow's Mansion - Jack designed a five storey, jewel-encrusted, mansion shaped like an ear of corn for the Scarecrow.
  • Truth Pond - A pond that is located near the Deadly Desert. Anyone can bathe in and be freed of an enchantment, but must always afterward tell the truth
  • Merry-Go-Mountains - A bunch of mountains that whirl swiftly and are made of rubber.
  • The Tottenhots - Small sprite-like people who sleep during the day and play at night live in Winkie Country.
  • Oogaboo - Oogaboo is one of the smallest and poorest kingdoms in the Land of Oz which is located in the far northwestern corner of Winkie Country. It is located in a valley within a mountain range
  • Thi - A city that is a relatively unexplored part of Oz. It is surrounded by shifting fields that sends a traveler in the opposite position. The inhabitants of the city of Thi are called Thists. They have diamond-shaped heads and heart-shaped bodies. Their stomachs and throats are lined with gold allowing them to eat the thistles that grow around their city.
  • Herku - A city with a strange master/slave society. It is surrounded by four walls with a burnished copper gate in its center. The residents of Herku use a small dose of Zosozo (a specially-compounded substance that is made of pure energy) that makes the residents skeletally thin and immensely strong enough to keep a breed of giants as their slaves.
  • Bear Center - A forest where the stuffed bears live. They are ruled by the Lavendar Bear and are guided by the mechanical Little Pink Bear.
  • Remote Tableland - A small community that is in the far southwestern corner of Winkie Country. It is home to the Yips (who resemble the Hyups from Mount Munch).

Famous quotes containing the words winkie, country and/or landmarks:

    Wee Willie Winkie rins through the town,
    Up stairs and doon stairs in his nicht-gown,
    Tirling at the window, crying at the lock,
    ‘Are the weans in their bed, for it’s now ten o’clock?’
    William Miller (1810–1872)

    Sunday—the doctor’s paradise! Doctors at country clubs, doctors at the seaside, doctors with mistresses, doctors with wives, doctors in church, doctors in yachts, doctors everywhere resolutely being people, not doctors.
    Sylvia Plath (1932–1963)

    Of all the bewildering things about a new country, the absence of human landmarks is one of the most depressing and disheartening.
    Willa Cather (1873–1947)
