Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Wild Hinterlands of Moose Shrubs is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Doofus McMoosus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, anti-smoking policies, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 21.257 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 aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moose Central. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 28.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Moose Shrubsian economy, worth a remarkable 3,462 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 162,865 shrubs, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

Minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, fraternities are notorious for drunken hooliganism, Moose Shrubs is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, and the government has awarded itself a month-long holiday to celebrate its achievements. 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 209th in Gay and 118,780th in the world for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -9 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
