The Republic of Wilkshire is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Paul Williams with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 37.408 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 Vasbury. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Wilkshirean economy, worth an astonishing 10,378 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 common. Average income is an amazing 277,446 wilkoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities, the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, and lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post. 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 206,934th in the world and 9,122nd in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -843.27 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
