The Kingdom of Whims is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 36.36 billion Whimsians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, although Education is also considered important, while International Aid and Law & Order 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 17,543 trillion Wirrs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 482,492 Wirrs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Boys who take just one date to the high school prom are called 'losers', the fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, and the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose. 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 168,949th in the world and 10th in Asia for Most Devout, with 1.53 Prayers Per Hour.
