OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Commonwealth of Shattered Cultures is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Count Blink-a-lot with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 9.601 billion are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whoever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Commerce receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dothallow. The average income tax rate is 74%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

The people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, pokemons have more rights than the average citizen, vitriolic divorce proceedings have become prime-time television, and refugees from other nations are flocking to Shattered Cultures's border. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is pervasive, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Shattered Cultures's national animal is the pokemon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the casino token.

Shattered Cultures is ranked 392nd in Europe and 120,881st in the world for Most Avoided, scoring -1,284.5 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
