Land Without Shrimp

Population10.834 billion

LeaderBuffy Summers


The Springtime Wonder of Land Without Shrimp is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Buffy Summers with a fair hand, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, complete lack of prisons, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.834 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 relatively small, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sunnydale. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Scooby economy, worth a remarkable 3,897 trillion kittens a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 359,701 kittens, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,334,421 per year while the poor average 68,202, a ratio of 19.6 to 1.

The government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, in musicals everybody's a little bit racist, and whole-wheat loaves can only be ordered on the dark web. 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 186th in the world and 2nd in the South Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 57,094.55 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
