The Federation of Whirl Islands is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by President Amira Paulini with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate population of 11.119 billion Whirl-Islanders have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on the Environment, although Healthcare and Education are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Navel Island. The average income tax rate is 70%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Expensive lawyers are hired to defend citizens in court for public urination charges against their pets, the government encourages conflict abroad to increase arms sales, the government pours millions of Dollars into rehabilitation programs annually, and political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Whirl Islands's national animal is the hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, its national religion is Roman Catholicism, and its currency is the Dollar.

Whirl Islands is ranked 112th in Rushmore and 100,690th in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -7 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
