Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Whims is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 30.359 billion Whimsians 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.

The minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Whims City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Whimsian economy, worth an astonishing 12,646 trillion Wirrs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 416,549 Wirrs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls, the government is sending thousands of citizens overseas to defend a square mile of land, nuclear physics is the most popular course at university, and the "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Whimsians any less frightened. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Whims's national animal is the Waterbear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Whims is ranked 103rd in the world and 1st in Asia for Longest Average Lifespans, with 95.66 Years.
