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 renowned for its complete lack of prisons, rampant corporate plagiarism, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 20.855 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, with Environment and Welfare also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Defense aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 27.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Moose Shrubsian economy, worth a remarkable 3,383 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 162,222 shrubs, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

People are moving into treehouses in record numbers, children are raised bilingual from an early age, the government has an "easy come, easy go" policy on youth crime, and condemned prisoners spend hours a day sitting in lotus position looking perplexed. 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 252nd in Gay and 145,966th in the world for Most Devout, scoring -288 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
