Population37.676 billion

LeaderPresident Paul Williams


The Republic of Wilkshire is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Paul Williams with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 37.676 billion Wilkshireans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, 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 10,548 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 279,988 wilkoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler', the mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-wilko mansions, and shady doctors seem to have impeccable records. 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 223,938th in the world and 10,125th in The North Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -91.7 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
