The Kingdom of Vilhelmina is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Kung Karl X with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical, devout population of 5.62 billion Vilhelminans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nynäshamn. The average income tax rate is 72.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vilhelminan economy, worth 775 trillion kronor a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 137,993 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A crusade against barbaric religious practices has begun, pilots always remember to send their doctors a Maxxmas card, board shorts have replaced board rooms, and old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vilhelmina's national animal is the Arctic fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Protestantism.

Vilhelmina is ranked 103,005th in the world and 3,111th in the Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 731.49 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
