Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Green Empire of Moose Shrubs is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Doofus McMoosus with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, digital currency, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 23.176 billion Meeseans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, although Industry is also considered important, while Law & Order and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moose Central. The average income tax rate is 1.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Meese economy, worth a remarkable 3,009 trillion Irish gold coins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 129,855 Irish gold coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Moose Central's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, the number of students attending university has reached a record high, rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes, and the government's new 'Crime Can Fight Itself' policy appears to be backfiring rather badly. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course.

Moose Shrubs is ranked 150,157th in the world and 318th in Gay for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -22.82 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
