OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Kingdom of Whims is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 25.825 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. The average income tax rate is 61%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Annulments are on the rise as couples discover their ancestors were born in the same hospitals, coalition governments are essential to passing new laws, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, and there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown. 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 4th in Asia and 4,207th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 7 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
