The Wilkshire Colony of Captain Mainwaring is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Captain George Mainwaring with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, frequent executions, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 30.242 billion Walmingtonians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Walmington-on-Sea. The average income tax rate is 94.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Captain Mainwaringian economy, worth a remarkable 4,759 trillion pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 157,365 pounds, with the richest citizens earning 8.7 times as much as the poorest.

The government's foreign policy statements are less threatening than a World Assembly cease-and-desist letter, there's stiff competition in the medical marketplace, the jackhammer is considered a tool of artistic criticism, and citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Captain Mainwaring's national animal is the lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Church of England.

Captain Mainwaring is ranked 11,995th in the world and 1st in Walmington on Sea for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100.05 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
