LeaderPresident Paul Williams


The Republic of Wilkshire is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Paul Williams with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 39.86 billion Wilkshireans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vasbury. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Wilkshirean economy, worth an astonishing 12,029 trillion wilkoes a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 301,785 wilkoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

At least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to President Paul Williams's wardrobe, children spend all morning taking out a comma and all afternoon putting it back in again, the tenet of free speech is held dear, and no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wilkshire's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wilkshire is ranked 193,907th in the world and 7,585th in The North Pacific for Most Conservative, scoring 32.92 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
