The Windmilluminati

Population5.261 billion

LeaderQueen Juliana


The Empire of The Windmilluminati is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Queen Juliana with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, compulsory vegetarianism, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.261 billion Windmilluminati are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hackney. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Windmilluminati economy, worth a remarkable 1,049 trillion plums a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 199,499 plums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon, saying "don't do anything that Queen Juliana wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, the TWBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, and parents often leave their kids in the car while they attend mindfulness meditation sessions. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Windmilluminati's national animal is the giraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

The Windmilluminati is ranked 208,273rd in the world and 10,019th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -24.45 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
