Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Wild Hinterlands of Moose Shrubs is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Doofus McMoosus with a fair hand, and renowned for its public floggings, unlimited-speed roads, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 21.47 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 medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Environment and Welfare are also considered important, while Law & Order and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moose Central. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 26.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Moose Shrubsian economy, worth a remarkable 3,427 trillion shrubs a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 159,653 shrubs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 462,374 per year while the poor average 43,686, a ratio of 10.6 to 1.

Meat-eating is frowned upon, children are sent to either religious or secular schools, corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians, and many junior high school teachers minor in midwifery. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Moose Shrubs's national animal is the toofs, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Moose Shrubs is ranked 15th in Gay and 1,655th in the world for Happiest Citizens, scoring 12 on the Relative Cheerfulness Rating.
