The Military Junta of Wishper is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Luna with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 14.097 billion Wishperians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zendar. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Wishperian economy, worth a remarkable 2,379 trillion Bits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 168,780 Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cogitators and mass debaters are skiving off work to hang around the National Symposium Park, the decommissioned tank divisions of other nations are being bought up en masse by Wishper, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, and the nation's ambassadors often conduct their business in jail cells. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wishper's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lunarism.

Wishper is ranked 205,862nd in the world and 7,592nd in Lazarus for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -26.76 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
