Land Without Shrimp

Population8.81 billion

LeaderBuffy Summers


The Holy Apocalypse of Land Without Shrimp is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Buffy Summers with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 8.81 billion scoobies have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sunnydale. The average income tax rate is 38.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Land Without Shrimpian economy, worth a remarkable 2,965 trillion kittens a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 336,594 kittens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

East Lebatuck tests its moon rovers in the barren wasteland of rural Land Without Shrimp, grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, the average commuter spends four hours a day driving to and from work, and Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes. 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 43,254th in the world and 1,760th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,094.27 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
