The Republic of Wilkshire is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Paul Williams with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 43.13 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 13,515 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 313,361 wilkoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, the government has ordered a moratorium on referenda, and unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave. 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 784th in the world and 42nd in The North Pacific for Most Secular, with 99.16 Atheism Rate.
