Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Wilkshire is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Paul Williams with a fair hand, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, keen interest in outer space, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 30.208 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 government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Westbury. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Wilkshirean economy, worth a remarkable 6,643 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 219,915 wilkoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank, genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, flu research is commonly shut down for fear of creating a superbug, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. 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 7th in the world and 1st in Europeia for Longest Average Lifespans, with 100.29 Years.
