The American Confederate States of Whitelake is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Peter Eaglecastle with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 10.247 billion Whitelakeans 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.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Religion & Spirituality, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Los Angeles. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Uranium Mining industry, followed by Information Technology and Retail.

Badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways, and citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Whitelake's national animal is the Hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, its national religion is Roman Catholic Christianity, and its currency is the Dollar.

Whitelake is ranked 17th in Balder and 830th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring 91 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
