The Kingdom of Whims is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 36.025 billion Whimsians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, although Education is also considered important, while International Aid and Law & Order aren't funded at all. 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 17,245 trillion Wirrs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 478,710 Wirrs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Group hugs break out during floor votes, farmers have taken to hunting billionaires who encroach on their land, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, and the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees. 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 45,499th in the world and 3rd in Asia for Most Politically Free, scoring 71.81 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
