Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Republic of Wilkshire is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Paul Williams with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, public floggings, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 27.554 billion Wilkshireans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, 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 6,132 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 reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 222,556 wilkoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has an international reputation for compassion, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, military spending is on the increase, and there is a dearth of space for new houses. 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 931st in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 255 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
