The Kingdom of Whims is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cheerful population of 35.483 billion Whimsians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Law & Order are ignored. 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 16,546 trillion Wirrs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 466,320 Wirrs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", Leader's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, '.lib' or '.con' domains indicate whether Whimsian websites are meant for liberals or conservatives, and the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster. 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 98th in the world and 1st in Asia for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 1,293.61 on the Hayek Index.
