The Democracy of Whalestron is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Cassian Kumiega with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, infamous sell-swords, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 8.217 billion Whalestronians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ravenwood. The average income tax rate is 87.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Whalestronian economy, worth a remarkable 1,087 trillion Quills a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 132,351 Quills, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Parents are relieved they no longer need to help with their kids' algebra homework, teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries, life is short but human kindness is endless, and innocent defendants often plead guilty for fear of receiving a much harsher sentence before jury. Crime is totally unknown. Whalestron's national animal is the Weasel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Bahá'í Faith.

Whalestron is ranked 201,540th in the world and 7,377th in Balder for Most Avoided, scoring 0.38 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
