Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Free Land of Shunnach is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by O Great One with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, unlimited-speed roads, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 14.477 billion Jungles are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Strathmungo. The average income tax rate is 78.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Shunnachian economy, worth 752 trillion baw bees a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 51,992 baw bees, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Shunnach's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, vanity is considered the fifth cardinal virtue, the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', and vets have been drafted in to help "fix" those who fail the parental license exam. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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.

Shunnach is ranked 13th in Wysteria and 1,062nd in the world for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 277 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
