Great Sheriffdom

LeaderGeneral Sheriffdom


The Federal Monarchy of Great Sheriffdom is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by General Sheriffdom with a fair hand, and renowned for its digital currency, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.029 billion Sheriffdomians 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.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greater Imperium. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Sheriffdom economy, worth 585 trillion Bytes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 193,171 Bytes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Snap elections are called over every minor impasse, religion is strictly forbidden within school grounds, humble workers tempt fate for a taste of airline caviar, and the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms. Crime is totally unknown. Great Sheriffdom's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Great Sheriffdom is ranked 4,487th in the world and 81st in the West Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 41.45 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
