The Commonwealth of Wilburstan is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 360 million Wilburstanians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of TechnoTown. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.0%.

The powerhouse Wilburstanian economy, worth 34.6 trillion Nikis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Gambling, and Book Publishing. Average income is 96,013 Nikis, with the richest citizens earning 8.6 times as much as the poorest.

Conversion therapy coupons are a popular present for coming of age ceremonies, tantrum-throwing toddlers are regularly imprisoned on assault charges, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, and conspiracy theorists allege TechnoTown's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Wilburstan's national animal is the Tofu Chan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wilburstan is ranked 39,489th in the world and 487th in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,285.45 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
