The Republic of Wilkshire is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Paul Williams with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, hatred of cheese, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 45.156 billion Wilkshireans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. 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 an astonishing 14,247 trillion wilkoes a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 315,510 wilkoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There is a growing belief that mothers love their children more than fathers, the constant playing of Merry Birthday on Wilkshirean radio has led to calls for the song to be classified as a crime against humanity, history textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students, and it's normal to start working life with crippling financial debt. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded 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 75th in the world and 4th in The North Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 914.03 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
