The Kingdom of Whims is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 38.388 billion Whimsians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Whims City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Whimsian economy, worth an astonishing 19,208 trillion Wirrs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is a breathtaking 500,383 Wirrs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

A sudden shout of "surprise!" does not herald a party for teachers, political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act, hedge fund managers are diversifying into herbaceous borders, and colonials are offended to find a local animal has been re-named the 'Furry Four-Legged Marsupial Waterbear'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Whims's national animal is the Waterbear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Whims is ranked 7,642nd in the world and 1st in Asia for Most Influential, scoring 7,109 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
