OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Kingdom of Whims is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its happy-go-lucky citizens. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 24.375 billion have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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. The average income tax rate is 75%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Euthanasia is legal, the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, and Members of Parliament operate under a PAYE scheme. 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 68th in Asia and 108,427th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with -8 Whatever.
