The Republic of Wilkshire is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Paul Williams with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 32.367 billion Wilkshireans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous 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 7,595 trillion wilkoes a year, is extremely 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 234,666 wilkoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

An increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct, it ain't easy to be green enough to be imported into Wilkshire, and most ambassadors from Wilkshire retire only a few years after being appointed. 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 15th in the world and 2nd in The North Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 45,972.59 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
