The Republic of Wilkshire is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Paul Williams with a fair hand, and remarkable for its restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, intelligent population of 24.916 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.

Voting is voluntary, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, organ donation rates have hit a new low, and school uniforms are compulsory. 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 18th in The Lexicon and 79,811th in the world for Nudest, with 94 Cheeks per Square Mile.
