Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Whims is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 29.313 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, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, although Healthcare is also considered important, while Spirituality and Administration receive no funds. 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 an astonishing 11,912 trillion Wirrs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 406,379 Wirrs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The only places to see Waterbears now are at local zoos, parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads, photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Leader's bedroom, and citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits. 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 17,331st in the world and 17th in Asia for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 5,135.27 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
