Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Forest of Shirakahn is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, lack of airports, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.713 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 government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but stagnant Shirakahnian economy, worth 206 trillion happinesses of all a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 14,054 happinesses of all, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Conspiracy theorists allege Shirakahn City's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols, fraternities are notorious for drunken hooliganism, the government is forced to pander to the will of every fruitcake politician, and the nation has an international reputation for compassion. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shirakahn's national animal is the freedom, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shirakahn is ranked 4,387th in Lazarus and 143,397th in the world for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -16 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
