The Republic of Wilkshire is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Paul Williams with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, anti-smoking policies, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 32.686 billion Wilkshireans 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 enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vasbury. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Wilkshirean economy, worth a remarkable 7,843 trillion wilkoes a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 239,951 wilkoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The consent form for routine blood pressure measurement has been nominated for the 'Novel Of The Year' award, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, the country's population is reported with a margin of error of several billions, and religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wilkshire's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wilkshire is ranked 202nd in the world and 10th in The North Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 491.31 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
