The Unwavering Love of Land With Lots of Shrimp is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Anya with a fair hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, otherworldly petting zoo, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 5.445 billion demons live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Los Angeles. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient demon economy, worth a remarkable 1,379 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 253,356 dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,066,008 per year while the poor average 39,074, a ratio of 27.3 to 1.

It's often raining men (hallelujah) in Los Angeles, heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-dollar treacle machine, nose plugs are the latest demon fashion accessory, and the nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Land With Lots of Shrimp's national animal is the demon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Land With Lots of Shrimp is ranked 143rd in the world and 11th in the South Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 61,282.79 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
