OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Kingdom of Whims is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 25.366 billion Whimsians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal 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 44%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, and the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles. 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 2nd in Asia and 768th in the world for Best Weather, with 514 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
