The Kingdom of Whale Republic is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Mr Whale I with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, pith helmet sales, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 1.398 billion Whalecians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of WhaleCity. The average income tax rate is 49.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Whalecian economy, worth 135 trillion WhaleCoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 97,052 WhaleCoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is known as the cheapskates of Lazarus, one of the nation's leading exports is empty platitudes, editorials that criticize the government are legally obligated to display the "pants on fire" warning, and using "inspect element" is grounds for espionage charges. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Whale Republic's national animal is the Whale, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Whalism.

Whale Republic is ranked 159,180th in the world and 5,155th in Lazarus for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.31 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
