Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Forest of Shirakahn is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.756 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, socially-minded, outspoken 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 enormous but underdeveloped Shirakahnian economy, worth a remarkable 1,639 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 an impressive 104,032 happinesses of all, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Surveillance cameras are banned, builders across Shirakahn are blocked up with orders for new public loos, town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists, and people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight. Crime is totally unknown. Shirakahn's national animal is the freedom, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shirakahn is ranked 139,891st in the world and 3,905th in Lazarus for Most Authoritarian, with 0.04 Stalins.
