The Kingdom of Whims is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, pith helmet sales, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 37.9 billion Whimsians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, although Education, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Whims City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Whimsian economy, worth an astonishing 18,788 trillion Wirrs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 495,739 Wirrs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Where there's a will there is usually a password manager, the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines', and for the sake of 'public interest' news programs tell viewers how to home-make Sarin gas bombs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Whims's national animal is the Waterbear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Whims is ranked 738th in the world and 1st in Asia for Safest, scoring 161.2 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
