Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Whims is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 31.496 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 13,458 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 427,294 Wirrs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children need to wear helmets and safety harnesses before mounting a carousel horse, skateboarding is considered a form of diplomacy, Leader's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, and unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves. 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 151,349th in the world and 16th in Asia for Most Devout, with 1.6 Prayers Per Hour.
