Land Without Shrimp

Population13.422 billion

LeaderRamona Flowers

Animaldream soul

The Slightly Canadian Realm of Land Without Shrimp is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ramona Flowers with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, complete lack of prisons, and national health service. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 13.422 billion Canadians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Toronto. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Canadian economy, worth a remarkable 5,175 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 385,584 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,190,566 per year while the poor average 96,342, a ratio of 12.4 to 1.

Kids are told they can be whoever they want to be when they grow up, janitors and factory workers are often better educated than the bosses they work for, the end of autumn is celebrated with a bonfire of designer bags, and late night talk show hosts are having a field day over Ramona Flowers's questionably sane new coalition partners. Crime is totally unknown. Land Without Shrimp's national animal is the dream soul, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Land Without Shrimp is ranked 11,067th in the world and 327th in the South Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 6,312.08 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
