The Republic of Wilkshire is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Paul Williams with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 35.057 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 a remarkable 9,077 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 258,941 wilkoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

An IT mega-corporation has a patent pending on the rectangle, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, light entertainment isn't dead, and people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight. 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 27,991st in the world and 1,225th in The North Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 93.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
