The King of All Wild Things is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Maurice Sendup with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, lack of airports, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working population of 9.857 billion Wild Things have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Max's room. The average income tax rate is 52.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Wild economy, worth a remarkable 1,043 trillion hot suppers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Retail, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 105,895 hot suppers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Weather reports simply advise Wild Things to 'look outside', schools offer a range of lessons in subjects as diverse as The Economics of Bullying for Lunch Money, procrastination is a national sport, and the nation's biggest export is stupidity. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. All Wild Things's national animal is the wild thing, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

All Wild Things is ranked 97,643rd in the world and 1st in Where the Wild Things Are for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 148,520 Standard Monetary Units.
