Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Inferno shiver is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by seazarine emprex raptor with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.014 billion Sharkkinds are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fathomir. The average income tax rate is 55.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sharkkind economy, worth 126 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Woodchip Exports. 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 an impressive 124,346 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Taking hostages is a great way to influence government policy, the song 'They Got an Awful Lot of Coffee in Inferno shiver' is a smash hit, diners regard burgers made from mechanically reclaimed cow protein as "proper meat", and edutainment video games are taking Inferno shiver's students to the next level. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Inferno shiver's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Inferno shiver is ranked 13,793rd in the world and 633rd in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 7,353.81 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
