OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Wilkshire is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Paul Williams with a fair hand, and renowned for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The compassionate, intelligent population of 24.885 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.

Students cut up leftover wilkoes during Arts and Crafts, same-sex marriages are increasingly common, much of Wilkshire's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, 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, and its currency is the wilko.

Wilkshire is ranked 27th in The Lexicon and 121,011th in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring -17 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
