Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Whims is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, frequent executions, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 30.944 billion Whimsians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be 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 13,068 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 422,327 Wirrs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has stated an intention to min-max its stats for 'teh pwnage', burning twigs to keep warm while lost in the wild is now a felony, centuries-old legal documents detailing agnatic-cognatic gavelkind succession are being dusted off again, and supermarket milk is a shear-thickening fluid that can stop small caliber bullets. 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 113th in the world and 1st in Asia for Longest Average Lifespans, with 95.84 Years.
