Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Wilkshire is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Paul Williams with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 28.399 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 6,574 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 231,516 wilkoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's leading climatologists are investigating animal flatulence in efforts to reduce methane emissions, the government pours millions of wilkoes into rehabilitation programs annually, muscular women are banned from competing in sporting competitions, and expensive lawyers are hired to defend citizens in court for public urination charges against their pets. 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 817th in the world and 1st in The Lexicon for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
