Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Wild Hinterlands of Moose Shrubs is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Doofus McMoosus with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, digital currency, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 21.119 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 receive no funds. 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 3,439 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 222nd in Gay and 123,423rd in the world for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -7 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
