The Republic of Wilfred Test is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Nicholas Fine with an even hand, and remarkable for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 9.034 billion Testians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Archer's Bow. The average income tax rate is 73%, 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.
The airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government, and anyone who so much as frowns is referred to a mental health unit. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wilfred Test's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is No Official Religion, and its currency is the Quirke.
Wilfred Test is ranked 6th in Esamir and 3,554th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with 956.75 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
