Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Whims is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 30.097 billion Whimsians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, although Healthcare is also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. 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 12,457 trillion Wirrs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 413,904 Wirrs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Welfare funding has recently gone through the roof, the armed forces are vetting the political loyalties of its remaining officers, wealthy parents-to-be can select their perfect baby, and the government's suicide hotline now redirects callers to local tax lawyers. 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 177,784th in the world and 39th in Asia for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 8.54 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
