The Republic of Wilkshire is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Paul Williams with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, intelligent population of 24.136 billion Wilkshireans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Education, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Westbury. The average income tax rate is 100%. 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.

Droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, Wilkshire is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, religion is strictly forbidden within school grounds, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wilkshire's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the wilko.

Wilkshire is ranked 1st in The Lexicon and 11th in the world for Best Weather, with 3,553 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
