LeaderEmperor William Kennedy


The Empire of Wilhelmsborough is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Emperor William Kennedy with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 13.908 billion Wilhelmsboroughians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yalta. The average income tax rate is 85.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wilhelmsboroughian economy, worth a remarkable 1,856 trillion Euros a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 133,462 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Emperor William Kennedy lights cigars with a hundred-Euro bill, the weather report is the prisoners' favourite programme, tourists call Wilhelmsboroughian beach towns "the fine coastline", and a bureaucratic fight over WIA cafeteria food expenditures has caused the temporary suspension of all agency counterintelligence operations. 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 36,086th in the world and 1,074th in Lazarus for Rudest Citizens, with 80.07 Insults Per Minute.
