The Empire of Wilhelmsborough is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor William Kennedy with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 11.892 billion Wilhelmsboroughians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yalta. The average income tax rate is 81.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wilhelmsboroughian economy, worth a remarkable 1,612 trillion Euros a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 135,555 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

If a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it... Wilhelmsboroughian satellites can detect it, dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines', motivational posters send motorists positive vibes in high-risk areas, and the national security service are a bunch of crooks. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wilhelmsborough's national animal is the Spider, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wilhelmsborough is ranked 3,179th in the world and 101st in Lazarus for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 42 Valid Endorsements.
