LeaderPresident Paul Williams


The Republic of Wilkshire is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Paul Williams with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, complete lack of prisons, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 45.109 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 14,198 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 314,759 wilkoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, President Paul Williams's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader, sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, and Wilkshirean novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about President Paul Williams. 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 144,323rd in the world and 3,289th in The North Pacific for Nudest, with 124 cheeks per square mile.
