Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Whims is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 29.134 billion Whimsians 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 minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Industry, and Social Policy. 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 11,905 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 408,636 Wirrs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Retired racing Waterbears are served truffles for breakfast, same-sex marriages are increasingly common, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, and colleges adhere to rigid ethnic quotas for admissions. 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 152,120th in the world and 44th in Asia for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -45.5 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
