OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Kingdom of Whims is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 25.539 billion Whimsians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 45%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Surveillance cameras are banned, prisoners work-share to cut down rising costs of keeping them in jail, religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, and photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Leader's bedroom. 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 5th in Asia and 6,911th in the world for Most Dedicated Public Healthcare, scoring 102 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
