The Wild Hinterlands of Moose Shrubs is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Doofus McMoosus with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 19.387 billion Moose Shrubsians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal government is mainly concerned with Education, although the Environment and Social Welfare are secondary priorities. Income tax is unheard of. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Euthanasia is legal, the nation has an international reputation for compassion, the toofs is a protected species, and Doofus McMoosus has just been declared ruler of Moose Shrubs in an international press conference. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Moose Shrubs's national animal is the toofs, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the shrub.

Moose Shrubs is ranked 118th in Gay and 113,872nd in the world for Largest Defense Forces, with -518 Unexploded Ordnance per Square Mile.
