LeaderPresident Paul Williams


The Republic of Wilkshire is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Paul Williams with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 37.235 billion Wilkshireans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

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 10,258 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 275,513 wilkoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage, light entertainment isn't dead, the only thing slower than the economy is the exchange where it's managed, and the government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap. 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 151,571st in the world and 6,919th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 26.56 on the Rand Index.
