The Republic of Wilkshire is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Paul Williams with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, complete lack of prisons, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 33.397 billion Wilkshireans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

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 8,208 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 245,788 wilkoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People talk about things being better when men were men, grumbling early morning commuters bemoan having to travel to work in the dark, doctors prescribe videos of political debates to patients with insomnia, and internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens. 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 166,049th in the world and 9,608th in The North Pacific for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -82.74 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
