Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Rogue Nation of Hilarious Shenanigans is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Sabriffle with an iron fist, and remarkable for its disturbing lack of elderly people, strictly enforced bedtime, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.87 billion Hilarious Shenanigansians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, with Defense, Environment, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Gremlin. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The large but underdeveloped Hilarious Shenanigansian economy, worth 924 trillion Om Noms a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 71,837 Om Noms, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

High-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, cremation is compulsory for the deceased, the giant 80-storey carving of Sabriffle in Mount Rushless can be seen from space, and the nation is proudly the least fertile in The Alliance of Dictators. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hilarious Shenanigans's national animal is the Liopleurodon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Sabrifflism.

Hilarious Shenanigans is ranked 11,036th in the world and 43rd in The Alliance of Dictators for Most Devout, with 1,815.64 Prayers Per Hour.
