Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Forest of Shirakahn is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its smutty television, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.54 billion Shirakahnians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever 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, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but stagnant Shirakahnian economy, worth 210 trillion happinesses of all a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 12,725 happinesses of all, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Shirakahn Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, and patriotic citizens simply tend to applaud rather than sing the nation's praises. Crime is totally unknown. Shirakahn's national animal is the freedom, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shirakahn is ranked 404th in the world and 9th in Lazarus for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 101.28 Effective Tax Rate.
