Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Feminine Feline Colony of Salems Den is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, zero percent divorce rate, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 20.032 billion Shadows are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.9%.

The frighteningly efficient a Shadow economy, worth a remarkable 2,009 trillion Claws a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 100,306 Claws, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 573,548 per year while the poor average 8,483, a ratio of 67.6 to 1.

Hundreds of thousands of convicts work as slaves in Salems Den's many privately-owned prisons, teenage fathers are forced to join the army, pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, and the Black Panther is believed to be extinct. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force. Salems Den's national animal is the Black Panther, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Salems Den is ranked 19,542nd in the world and 1st in Cat Burglars for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 96.9 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
