Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Wilkshire is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Paul Williams with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, hatred of cheese, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 28.08 billion Wilkshireans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded 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 6,318 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 common. Average income is an amazing 225,015 wilkoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Refugees from other nations are flocking to Wilkshire's border, orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children, the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Wilkshire after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, and the mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations. 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 159th in the world and 1st in The Lexicon for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 57,781.79 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
