Whale Republic

Population1.242 billion

LeaderMr Whale I


The Kingdom of Whale Republic is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mr Whale I with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, state-planned economy, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 1.242 billion Whalecians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of WhaleCity. The average income tax rate is 58.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Whalecian economy, worth 116 trillion WhaleCoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 93,658 WhaleCoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The nation turns a blind eye to human rights abuses in its quest for athletic supremacy, hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, lobster tastes best when it is red, and small patches of desolate land across the world are part of Whalecian sovereign territory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Whale Republic's national animal is the Whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Whalism.

Whale Republic is ranked 190,643rd in the world and 6,588th in Lazarus for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -4.9 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
