OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Free Land of Shunnach is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by O Great One with a fair hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 13.301 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 61%, 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 government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, and Members of Parliament are often found living in cardboard boxes. 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 58th in Wysteria and 52,422nd in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.36 Stalins.
