The Commune of Wishper is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Luna with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, state-planned economy, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 18.397 billion Wishperians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zendar. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Wishperian economy, worth a remarkable 3,167 trillion Bits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 172,176 Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, the Wishperian delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...", parents often leave their kids in the car while they attend mindfulness meditation sessions, and films are funded in accordance with the volume of tears shed when reading the screenplay. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wishper's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lunarism.

Wishper is ranked 5,451st in the world and 247th in Lazarus for Smartest Citizens, with 122.58 quips per hour.
