The Republic of Wilkshire is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Paul Williams with a fair hand, and remarkable for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 25.275 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, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Environment, with Education, Law & Order, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Administration receive no funds. 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 5,111 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 202,223 wilkoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Expensive lawyers are hired to defend citizens in court for public urination charges against their pets, torture is illegal, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, and major cities are suffering under water rationing. 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 22nd in The Lexicon and 72,874th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.177 Stalins.
