Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Republic of Wilkshire is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Paul Williams with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, hatred of cheese, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 26.222 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 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 5,482 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 209,091 wilkoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages, houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, and military funding has been stripped back. 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 1st in The Lexicon and 571st in the world for Largest Public Sector, scoring 58 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
