Land Without Shrimp

Population17.36 billion



The Eternal Gratitude of Land Without Shrimp is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Buffy with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 17.36 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sunnydale. The average income tax rate is 1.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Canadian economy, worth a remarkable 7,309 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 421,056 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Third world countries are rich in "I Love Sunnydale" t-shirts, tabloids publicly shun nurses for not calling home on the weekends, depression sinks in after each election when voters realize they are stuck with these people for years, and shivering secretaries type letters under torrential downpours in open-roof offices. Crime is totally unknown. Land Without Shrimp's national animal is the vampyre, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Land Without Shrimp is ranked 2,100th in the world and 58th in the South Pacific for Nicest Citizens, with 70.18 average smiles per day.
