Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Wilkshire is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Paul Williams with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 28.568 billion Wilkshireans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Westbury. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Wilkshirean economy, worth a remarkable 6,641 trillion wilkoes a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 232,488 wilkoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act, and the government has declared its commitment to multilateralism. 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.

Wilkshire is ranked 8th in the world and 1st in The Lexicon for Longest Average Lifespans, with 99.52 Years.
