Land Without Shrimp

Population11.606 billion

LeaderBuffy Summers


The Flirtatious Fall of Land Without Shrimp is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Buffy Summers with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 11.606 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 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. The average income tax rate is 28.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Scooby economy, worth a remarkable 4,305 trillion kittens a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 370,978 kittens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The country's population is reported with a margin of error of several billions, truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, proper policy proposals prerequire professional peer-reviewed papers, and matryoshka dolls resembling nested Death Stars are commonly sold. 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 5,665th in the world and 181st in the South Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 2,114.51 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
