OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Free Land of Shunnach is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by O Great One with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 13.504 billion Macs love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Strathmungo. The average income tax rate is 64%, 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.

All tariffs have been abolished, airport security is provided by private companies, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, and the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shunnach's national animal is the feral cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the baw bee.

Shunnach is ranked 105th in Wysteria and 104,693rd in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -19 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
