The Republic of Wilkshire is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Paul Williams with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service. The compassionate, intelligent population of 24.699 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.

Police spend their Saturday nights breaking up illegal street races, political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, coalition governments are essential to passing new laws, and Wilkshire has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories. 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 5th in The Lexicon and 34,542nd in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 66 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
