The Grand Duchy of Whitmarche is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Minister-president Konrad Scholz with an even hand, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, punitive income tax rates, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, devout population of 2.316 billion Whitmarchers are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ricsfurt. The average income tax rate is 79.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Whitmarchean economy, worth 114 trillion guilders a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 49,242 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Radio stations are forbidden to play anything with too much drum or bass, 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, janitors and factory workers are often better educated than the bosses they work for, and the Whitmarchean Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Whitmarche's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Whitmarche is ranked 18,077th in the world and 38th in Anteria for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 2,408.36 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
