OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Kingdom of Whims is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 25.476 billion Whimsians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Commerce, the Environment, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Whims City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 49%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, a survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, Whims City is a police state during international summits, and people are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Whims's national animal is the Waterbear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Wirr.

Whims is ranked 2nd in Asia and 73rd in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 734 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
