The Commonwealth of Whipjangle is a gargantuan, devout nation, notable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 23.094 billion Whipjangleans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The small government juggles the competing demands of Defence, Social Welfare, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology industries.

Travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs, the nation refuses to provide international aid, the people elect the Supreme Court justices directly, and elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Whipjangle's national animal is the rattlesnake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the jangle.

Whipjangle is ranked 21st in libertarian and 44,236th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -15 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
