OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Wilkshire is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Paul Williams with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 24.3 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.

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 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.

The national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets, the welfare administration's new sweeping authority has forced the poor and needy to shop from pre-approved grocery lists, and politicians constantly ring their voters to remind them how good a job they're doing. 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 24th in The Lexicon and 76,988th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.137 Stalins.
