Land Without Shrimp

Population6.351 billion



The Dazzling Glory of Land Without Shrimp is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Buffy with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 6.351 billion scoobies enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sunnydale. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Land Without Shrimpian economy, worth a remarkable 1,977 trillion kittens a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 311,348 kittens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Private pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are given away freely by the government, government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, and babies are a small but significant export. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Land Without Shrimp's national animal is the vampyre, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Land Without Shrimp is ranked 943rd in the world and 26th in the South Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 77.08 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
