LeaderPresident Paul Williams


The Republic of Wilkshire is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Paul Williams with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 41.287 billion Wilkshireans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. 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 12,949 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 313,638 wilkoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vasbury's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, Wilkshirean novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about President Paul Williams, corporate lobbying has been outlawed, and citizens may cast their vote over the internet or phone. 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 273,162nd in the world and 13,923rd in The North Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -96.23 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
