The Empire of Wilhelmsborough is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor William Kennedy with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 13.494 billion Wilhelmsboroughians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yalta. The average income tax rate is 83.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wilhelmsboroughian economy, worth a remarkable 1,844 trillion Euros a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 136,670 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

More sidewalk is dedicated to animals than people, you're never too young to learn how to lie with confidence, Emperor William Kennedy lights cigars with a hundred-Euro bill, and the weather report is the prisoners' favourite programme. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wilhelmsborough's national animal is the Spider, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wilhelmsborough is ranked 182,902nd in the world and 6,572nd in Lazarus for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -8 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
