OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Kingdom of Whims is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete lack of prisons, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 26.096 billion Whimsians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Whims City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Whimsian economy, worth a remarkable 9,596 trillion Wirrs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 367,745 Wirrs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, shoppers have literally had their hands full since plastic bags were banned, citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', and the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Whims's national animal is the Waterbear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Whims is ranked 46th in Asia and 57,588th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring 13 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
