Population44.242 billion

LeaderPresident Paul Williams


The Republic of Wilkshire is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Paul Williams with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 44.242 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, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. 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 14,121 trillion wilkoes a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 319,192 wilkoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

What goes down must come up, both criminals and civilians are DOA, the government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, and the latest national park is visited by more sharks than people. 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 292,719th in the world and 7,132nd in The North Pacific for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -91.75 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
