Land Without Shrimp

Population12.873 billion

LeaderBuffy Summers


The Lingering Spring of Land Without Shrimp is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Buffy Summers with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 12.873 billion Scooby Gang 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 prioritizes Education, with Administration, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sunnydale. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Scooby economy, worth a remarkable 4,859 trillion kittens a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 377,511 kittens, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,242,074 per year while the poor average 85,978, a ratio of 14.4 to 1.

Unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves, pretending to be prejudiced is a good way to get out of jury duty, the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, and home renovation shows are increasingly popular. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Land Without Shrimp's national animal is the vampyre, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Land Without Shrimp is ranked 5,388th in the world and 160th in the South Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 2,208.15 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
