Winkie Country

The Winkie Country is the eastern division (by the original maps of Oz; later versions make the Winkie Country the western division) of L. Frank Baum's land of Oz. It is distinguished by the color yellow worn by most of the local inhabitants as well as the color of their surroundings.

This was the country ruled by the Wicked Witch of the West before Dorothy melted her with a bucket of water in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz; since then, the Tin Woodman has ruled the Winkies as their Emperor. The Winkie Country is separated only by the Deadly Desert from the underground Dominions of the Nome King.

Like all the countries of Oz, the Winkie Country contains various unusual sights and places. Among them are,
