OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Kingdom of Whims is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 24.947 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 76%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, voting is voluntary, buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, and Animal Liberationists are regularly jailed. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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 85th in Asia and 111,383rd in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -65 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
