LeaderPresident Paul Williams


The Republic of Wilkshire is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Paul Williams with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, hatred of cheese, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 38.845 billion Wilkshireans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vasbury. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Wilkshirean economy, worth an astonishing 11,285 trillion wilkoes a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 290,531 wilkoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Holiday light displays just aren't the same without seizure-inducing strobe effects, worried-looking neonatal nurses are being deployed in place of SWAT teams during dangerous drug busts, every workday begins with group therapy, and the education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wilkshire's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wilkshire is ranked 9th in the world and 1st in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 16,980.71 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
