The Empire of Whimichy is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Malak with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, otherworldly petting zoo, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.214 billion Whimichyians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Serkand. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 41.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Whimichyian economy, worth 262 trillion marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 216,508 marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 773,188 per year while the poor average 43,564, a ratio of 17.7 to 1.

The arms industry is backed by government subsidies and harsh anti-protest laws are in place, agricultural employees work for peanuts, the police use sound cannons and mortars to deal with loud parties, and tourist operators promise visitors tours of live burning shipwrecks and plane crash sites. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Whimichy's national animal is the potato, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Leader Worship.

Whimichy is ranked 110,531st in the world and 4,456th in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 12.38 on the Hayek Index.
