The Empire of Whimichy is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Malak with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, strictly enforced bedtime, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.508 billion Whimichyians 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Serkand. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 51.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Whimichyian economy, worth 363 trillion marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 240,971 marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 758,041 per year while the poor average 58,611, a ratio of 12.9 to 1.

Toxic smog is dismissed as the populace just "letting off steam", boot polish is the favourite lip gloss of entry-level corporate workers, the police are destroying all photographic evidence of their own existence, and running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Whimichy's national animal is the potato, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Leader Worship.

Whimichy is ranked 27,576th in the world and 813th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 68.71 on the Human Development Index.
